The world changes and we need to redevelop what is made, how it is made, where to sell, how to distribute, all while taking into consideration the consequences for the world around us. Some entrepreneurial people start their own business, but we also need people who seek opportunities for improvement inside larger organizations in business, government, education, and health care.

Entrepreneurship is all about creating value, not only in terms of financial returns, but also about improving social and environmental aspects. Topics include: entrepreneurial strategies; ethics; social entrepreneurship; entrepreneurial marketing and entrepreneurial finance.

This course is the first course of the track "Entrepreneurial Side of Business" (1. Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice - 2. Entrepreneurial Marketing - 3. Social Entrepreneurship - 4. Strategic Entrepreneurship)
