Master of Science in Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship

School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg

Language of instruction: English

Our Entrepreneurship programme is called the Masters of science programme Knowledge-Based Entrepreneurship, abbreviated as KBE. The programme is supported by Region Västra Götaland (VGR). VGR is co-financing initiatives to promote growth and development in Västra Götaland. The initiative's aim is to promote entrepreneurial projects with international potential.

Entrepreneurship has become a buzzword, signalling the need for society to transform through new ideas and new organizations. The word raises associations of starting a small company –and some of our alumni do that – while others work on change processes or new business development in large companies and public-policy. Becoming an entrepreneur is also a mind-set about being able to cope with change, through a systematic understanding of what may work, or not, as well as the interactions between the company and the surrounding society.

About the programme

The Entrepreneurship programme aims to provide students with scientific and practical knowledge about innovation and entrepreneurship as well as with the skills to turn such knowledge into practice. The learning objectives are therefore designed to help the student acquire perspectives, skills and experiences necessary to take on an entrepreneurial role in future positions and activities.

The Entrepreneurship programme provides knowledge and skills relevant to developing new businesses as well as renewing existing businesses through entrepreneurship. This involves integrating knowledge about the interplay between services, design, and different types of knowledge with processes of entrepreneurship, business development and commercialization. The programme provides an individual learning process so that each student can develop their analytical and reflective capabilities, in relation to entrepreneurial processes. During year 2, the teams also are engaged in developing a new business or project.
