If you aim to make your own mark on the business world, the Entrepreneurship and Innovation (E&I) track of the MSc in Business Administration will provide you with a comprehensive set of tools.
By discussing and reflecting on recent research articles, you will be exposed to the latest theories and models. You will also examine the practice of E&I in the form of case studies, guest lectures and cooperation with industry partners.
This one-year Master's programme offers courses in Theories of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, International Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management. The first course focuses on the process of discovering, developing and exploiting opportunities for new products, services and business models. International Entrepreneurship is an interactive course, during which you will be expected to actively participate in discussing articles (discussion seminars) on a variety of topics, including opportunity recognition, entrepreneurship and globalisation, venture capital and crowd funding, and corporate and social entrepreneurship. Innovation Management provides the knowledge and skills needed to analyse, design and implement innovations, and develop strategies for new business creation.
Students in the track work with the Amsterdam Center for Entrepreneurship @ Science Park and the Amsterdam Center for Service Innovation (AMSI).
