Course GEU2KV

Entrepreneurship in Regional Development and Growth

7.5 Credits
First Cycle

Starts week 36, 2024

The course begins by discussing the basic concepts and models for growth. This includes sorting out different measures of what growth is and what different growth patterns might look like. In addition to this, there is discussion of various kinds of growth, e.g. organic growth and growth through acquisition, as well as a review of both the most common obstacles for growth and the measures used to promote growth. These obstacles and opportunities are also discussed with respect to the entrepreneurial business environment and the way these companies can contribute to regional development.
In the second part of the course, the students compare the growth of two or more successful companies and analyze any differences based on the situation of each company. They also discuss how each company can contribute to regional development and competitiveness.
