About the Programme

Short Summary

“A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” – John A. Sedd

Our programme reflects Sedd’s sentiment by not only providing scientific and practical knowledge about entrepreneurship and innovation, but training you to confidently turn ideas into business opportunities, drive entrepreneurship for yourself and within a firm, and use your personal and professional skills to turn knowledge into practice. You will enhance your entrepreneurial ability and increase your knowledge of how to identify, capture, and create value for industry and society.

About the Programme

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney

Disney’s words underline the spirit of our programme, which will inspire you to follow your entrepreneurial and innovative ideas through to fruition. We aim to develop and train entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs with strong analytical and creative abilities and the experience to handle complex knowledge areas and markets.
