Introduction to Entrepreneurship

01.08.2023 - 31.08.2024



This course introduces you to the basic principles and concepts of entrepreneurship and the skills required to succeed as an entrepreneur. You will gain insights into sustainable entrepreneurship, the required skills, and related challenges as well as the many different options for pursuing entrepreneurship. The course consists of online lectures by experienced entrepreneurs from different fields of business as well as learning assignments. This is completely an online course without dependencies to period schedules.

Upon completion of the course, you will:

  • understand complex entrepreneurial phenomena
  • understand the skills entrepreneurs need
  • be familiar with the different types of business structures
  • understand the key competencies for sustainable entrepreneurship
  • know how business ideas are generated
  • have an understanding of future business trends
  • be able to consider entrepreneurship as a potential career option
  • describe your own skills and competencies


The course consists of online lectures and learning tasks. You get to give, and you get, peer feedback and have the opportunity to network with visiting lecturers. Each lecture will include an interesting real-life story told by an experienced entrepreneur to shed light on the challenges and decisions they have faced on their career path. You will discuss and reflect on your learning and complete learning assignments to broaden your perspectives. In addition, you will expand your knowledge by reading literature, articles and other online materials (such as MOOC courses).
