Entrepreneurship and Governance

Bachelor of Science with a Major in Entrepreneurship and Governance

 

Entrepreneurial activities take place within a wider institutional environment, in which a range of public, private and societal institutions progressively shape the economy and society. Successful managers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow need to be able to identify those institutional environments that best facilitate innovation and encourage market competitiveness. In addition, managers should recognize opportunities to influence and collaborate with public, economic, and corporate governance institutions to benefit their own entrepreneurial activities.

The major in Entrepreneurship and Governance* introduces the various governance actors, their power relations, interactions and social ties, before linking these to entrepreneurial activities. Key questions will focus on appropriate institutional frameworks across the stages of business development, from early stage start-up activities to more established businesses, and encompass topics including collaboration, new types of incubators, infrastructure, R&D and innovation. Students will gather skills both for their own entrepreneurial interest as well as for management positions in larger businesses.
