Input on how to manage innovation, entrepreneurial development and business growth
Networking with other people interested in founding a business
How our students perceive the E&I specialization (E&I SBWL)
High-quality teaching is very important to us. We, therefore, regularly run surveys on the satisfaction of our students.

Thirdly, we want to make sure our students perceive the examination process as fair.
This is how students rated their satisfaction with the specialization (anonymous and completely private survey, n= 98, averages shown):
