In the Entrepreneurship: New Venture Creation track you will learn how to create, develop and exploit business opportunities by starting up and managing new ventures. This track offers you an opportunity to be fully involved as an entrepreneur in the start-up process, from idea selection and team composition to venture formation, which enables you to gain real experience in starting up a new business. In addition, you will be part of our mentorship programme where you are matched with an experienced mentor.
The Corporate Entrepreneurship and Innovation track is designed for you who want to work with business development and innovation in established businesses. You will learn how opportunities for renewal and innovation are identified, developed, organised and implemented in the organisation. During the programme you will gain practical experience as an intern at a progressive company. At the company you will be engaged in a business development project together with your mentor and the current staff.
Teaching and learning
Our pedagogy is based on the belief that you need practice to learn. However, you also need to reflect on your practice, and learn from available theories in the field. This is why you will find this programme embraces action – without compromising the valuable learning that stems from theory. We are proud of the multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural backgrounds of our students within this programme. Our experience shows this increases the opportunity to form competent teams, create innovative ideas and to reach an international market. Within the programme, you will expand your international network for both social and business purposes.

As a student in the programme you are welcome to participate in activities at the Ideon Innovation incubator, including the opportunity to sit in their co-working space. We retain strong relationship with our alumni and invite them to join in various activities during the programme.

We collaborate with Lund University’s student incubator VentureLab, and as a graduate of the programme you can enjoy a fast-track application process to join the Incubator. Depending on your chosen track, you will either get an experienced and keen individual mentor to help you navigate through your entrepreneurial and innovation projects, or work together with a partner from your class on an internship with a mentor connected to your project.
