The main objective of the Entrepreneurship & Strategy course is to provide participants with the essential strategic knowledge required to identify, assess, shape and act on entrepreneurial opportunities in different contexts, settings and organizations.

The focus is on the entrepreneurial mindset – a certain way of thinking, not on ‘how to launch a start-up’. Participants will learn about activities and stakeholders associated with entrepreneurial ventures and develop the knowledge and a set of skills that drive entrepreneurial behavior and contribute to the successful path from an innovative idea to a relevant and attractive entrepreneurial project.

The course concentrates on developing crucial life skills – problem-solving, teamwork, empathy, learning to accept failure as a part of the growth process – that will help participants navigate an uncertain future and encourage them to think and act more entrepreneurially.

The course integrates insights from multiple disciplines, including accounting, finance, management, marketing, sales, and psychology, and pushes participants to put their previous knowledge into practice.


The course covers multiple topics, including opportunity recognition and evaluation, social dimension, business models, financing, ecosystems, learning from failure, and others. Everyone is expected to prepare according to the assigned materials before each session. The course work will be based on a ‘flipped’ classroom approach, topic lectures and workshops.

Students will work in teams on a new venture project, analyze the feasibility of the project and develop a final presentation/report. Every team member should participate in assigned team activities. To monitor progress throughout the course, each team will be asked to keep track of their activities and present them. The teams will get feedback and further strategic guidance from the instructor to enable future progress.


Videos, articles, case studies, podcasts, and additional materials related to the course will be assigned throughout the semester.
