The raison d’être of the course is that more graduates from higher education within the natural sciences will start and succeed in building new businesses, that they do this as a specific and competent career choice, that the businesses are born with a high level of ambition and core knowledge, and that the founders efficiently exploit the industrial development and financing opportunities available.

Teaching and learning methods

The course partly includes case studies and partly brings in experts who cover the different aspects of business creation. Our pedagogical approach is highly interactive: Through small and large groups we will work on ideas for generating business value. As much of our knowledge will be created in class, it is crucial that students come well prepared for discussion and willing to participate. Interactive class assignments with high practical relevance will provide students with the ability to apply their new learning in practice.
