Thinking up an interesting business idea is not the end of the process, in fact, it is just the beginning. This idea must be developed into a business concept and a business opportunity through both formal and informal techniques. The course is given in English.

During the course you will be challenged to identify areas of need, to find and create business ideas, and to develop business concepts and opportunities. In order to facilitate this, the course will present key skill-sets in a series of lectures, help participants use this in a series of workshops, and further use a mix of theoretical analysis and practice-focused teaching methods.

The course will further encompass:

-     Creativity

-     Finding and/or creating business ideas

-     Identifying the target market

-     The business model

-     Opportunity selection

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
