Program Description

Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Free University of Bozen - Bolzano

Get top-notch business knowledge on start-ups and innovation from us. Turn your ideas into your start-up!

The goal of this two-year programme is to provide students with a solid theoretical understanding of entrepreneurial and economic subjects, focusing on two aspects: how to build up new companies and how to develop innovation within a company. Areas that characterize the study of entrepreneurship include setting up a business plan, analysing the human, economic and financial resources necessary to set up a business and understanding how to recognize market opportunities. Innovation is understood broadly as the creation and application of new skills applied to product development, managerial processes and competitive strategies.

Students are required to undertake an internship.

Career opportunities:

Graduates will find an occupation in knowledge-intensive industries, as well as in traditional sectors which are experiencing a transformation process due to innovation. An entrepreneurial approach is being applied in medium and large public and private companies and in the service sector as a way to administer and manage and to allocate resources. Graduates may also apply for positions as project managers in the development of new products and in the management of innovation.

The Entrepreneurial Laboratory

A qualifying element of this educational path is represented by the “Entrepreneurial Laboratory”, which is a formative context in which the course contents belonging to heterogeneous disciplinary fields are linked in a systematic way, applying didactic learning methods based on problems. In the laboratory the progressively acquired skills are utilized by the students in order to analyze real situations.

Please note: This is a trilingual study programme (Italian, German and English). Students have to prove knowledge in at least 2 out of the 3 tuition languages at a B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages in order to be admitted.
