Transform creative ideas into successful business ventures

Develop the right skills for the employment market

The knowledge you gain from this minor is extremely valuable in today’s labour markets because career success increasingly depends on your capacity to be proactive, promote change, and pursue new entrepreneurial initiatives that create economic and social value. Specifically, completing the minor will allow you to better appreciate the different forms of entrepreneurship across various contexts, understand the distinct challenges faced by entrepreneurs, and find creative solutions for overcoming these challenges. Both startup and corporate entrepreneurs often struggle to launch and grow new business ventures such that knowledge about how to successfully develop new entrepreneurial initiatives is essential to any student.

For specific information about each course, please visit our study guide.

Overview courses

  • Foundations and Forms of Entrepreneurship

    This course introduces you to the concept of entrepreneurship, its role and importance in our society, and the process by which entrepreneurs transform new ideas into business ventures. You learn to apply basic theories from economics, sociology, and psychology to study key topics in entrepreneurship.

  • Strategic Management of Technology and Innovation

    In this course, you learn to understand and apply basic theories behind the processes of technology-based innovation within organizations and their environments, the development of innovation strategies, and the organizational implementation of innovation strategies.

  • Enterprising Behavior

    This course deals with the study and practice of entrepreneurial behaviour. You will learn about the six so-called entrepreneurial skills: imagining and recognizing opportunities, taking action, perseverance, networking, teamwork, and persuasion.

  • Filming Entrepreneurship

    This course aims at facilitating you in experiencing, exploring, discovering and ‘reporting’ about entrepreneurship. In pairs, you create a (short) film about entrepreneurship so as to ‘activate’ your own curiosity, and to – visually – communicate their ideas and perspectives.

  • New Venture Creation

    In this course, you work in a team to create a business plan that validates a business idea using the business canvas methodology. The teams will also present this business plan to a panel of experts, entrepreneurs, and investors.

  • Internship

    It is possible to replace two of the courses for an internship that will be supervised by one of the lecturers of the courses. The courses to be replaced are one course from period 1 and one course from period 2 (you decide). Internships should be aligned with one or more of the topics that are addressed in the minor and should be initiated by students. Proposals for an internship need approval from the minor coordinator.
