Teaching methods

The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp has an innovative design where students meet in intensive sessions once a month. The bootcamp is to be developmental: as students, you will actively participate as individuals and as a group to learn “hands-on”. As this module is not conventional in its teaching, we plan to run a series of workshops rather than lectures where you will be generating some output (e.g., an idea, a theoretical concept, etc.). It is also intercultural: the different origins of the participants enrich the experience and challenge participants to adapt and manage diversity.
The teaching and learning strategy is designed to develop your entrepreneurial skills and realise that entrepreneurship can indeed be (taught) and learnt. Since entrepreneurial situations are by nature ambiguous with no “right” or “wrong” answer to problems, the module will help you in designing your own entrepreneurial journey, from idea identification to idea exploitation.
PowerPoint slides, details of assignments and other information will be available on the e-learning for this module.
