Entrepreneurship in Context 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsThis course is grounded in a contextual and environmental perspective of entrepreneurship. Whilst theories and models can be useful to understand entrepreneurship as a general phenomenon on an abstract level, entrepreneurial activity is always situated in idiosyncratic contexts. Such contexts contain varying configurations of conditions that affect both the activity and performance of new ventures. Therefore, this course will develop students’ ability to assess and apprise contextual conditions. Students are taught to scan and analyse the social, environmental, and technological environment and trained to solve situated problems related to entrepreneurship.
Connection to research and practice
The course benefits from JIBS’ research focus in entrepreneurship in context. The course is taught by scholars within the school’s MMTC research group and is grounded in scientific literature developed by or within this groups field of specialist expertise. In addition, guest lectures with industry expertise will educate the students on current and emerging social, environmental, and technological trends.
