Corporate Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Growth 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsCorporate entrepreneurship is important for businesses striving to renew themselves and take increased responsibility in contributing to sustainability. The aim of the course is to familiarize students with venture creation and innovation within corporate settings. Students will acquire knowledge on how to encourage, initiate, and grow new business ventures by exploring resources required, possible growth strategies, and the management of challenges related to sustainable growth.
The course adopts a sustainability perspective on corporate entrepreneurship and growth. As such, students will assess how businesses can achieve not only the financial sustainability they require for survival, but also how this can be done in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. They will explore questions surrounding the responsible limits and alternatives to growth as well as the potential for new business growth to be socially and/or environmentally regenerative.
In this course we focus on strategic and managerial issues in relation to corporate entrepreneurship for sustainable growth.
