Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management

In a busi­ness envi­ron­ment charac­te­rized by globa­liza­tion, rapid tech­no­lo­gical change as well as rapidly chan­ging cust­omer needs, orga­niza­t­ions need to act incre­a­singly entre­pre­neu­rial to main­tain their compe­ti­tive advan­tage.

In this course, students will there­fore gain an under­stan­ding on how esta­blished firms can increase their inno­va­tiveness by faci­li­ta­ting entre­pre­neu­rial thin­king and acting of their employees and how to gather data from external sources.

Topics being discussed in the course:

  • Entre­pre­neurship as a field of rese­arch and prac­tice

  • Dyna­mics of inno­va­tion

  • Demo­cra­tiza­tion of inno­va­tion

  • Emer­ging orga­niza­t­ional forms for inno­va­tion
