2. Main Structure of the Programme

Entrepreneurial management is a two-year online program. Characteristic of the program is that the education continuously keeps parallel focus on science and action. During the first year, the scientific basis for entrepreneurship is added as a phenomenon as well as the company‘s activities and conditions. The second year is characterized by putting the knowledge in a larger context. A part of this process is to translate the knowledge from the first year into practical action. The program concludes with an in-depth study of an entrepreneurship topic.

The program starts with the introduction course The terms and conditions of entrepreneurship. The purpose of this course is to give the students a basic understanding of the role of entrepreneurship in society. During the first year, the basic block in business administration is highlighted, where marketing, management and organization, financial control and accounting are included. It also provides a basic course in project work and the basics of scientific method.

The first part of the second-year deals with the practical part of the program. This is done, among other things by developing a business plan, where all previous courses are woven together, in parallel with sales and negotiation. The final part of the program is deepened in the theoretical framework of entrepreneurship, and the students write a thesis as a final part.
