Master of Science in Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship

General

Program Description

Language of instruction: English

Our Entrepreneurship program is called the Masters of science program Knowledge-Based Entrepreneurship, abbreviated as KBE. The program 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, signaling 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 mindset 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 program

The Entrepreneurship program 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 program 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 program 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.

Sweden and the Swedish business world have had a great deal of international success over the past 100 years. A couple of important factors of success include understanding and respect for other cultures and human context, which results in the realization that there are no general solutions to local problems. A specific type of leadership and a unique approach to both commercial enterprise and taking responsibility have been developed, both of which have garnered international respect. Research at the School of Business, Economics and Law helps clarify this leadership and approach to taking responsibility, and makes conveyance to students, our leaders of tomorrow, possible.
