Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship (KBE) focuses upon both business and social entrepreneurship. Our students learn concepts, tools and techniques that will help them impact society. Students work in specified courses in teams with cases provided by selected external partners. These cases range from manufacturing, technology, services, creative industries and social projects.
KBE is a two year programme, leading to an internationally recognised Master’s degree. During the first year, cases and examples of practical implementation are important vehicles to accomplish your learning processes. In the second year, the competencies you acquire are implemented in a venture-creation project and a master’s thesis project. The venture-creation process links a new product or service idea with a team of astute and entrepreneurial students and provides top quality teaching and coaching throughout the journey. These projects can be ideas generated by you and your fellow students, or ideas that arise externally, and could for example focus on business ideas where service components are important, environmentally sustainable products, or services or ICT-related projects.
Our alumni work in jobs ranging from starting their own company, to being change agents in large companies to venture capital and banking sector.
