Core Courses

Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Europe
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course teaches tools and skills required to succeed as an entrepreneur — and lets you apply these tools in a real-life project. Gain an understanding of innovation in various settings looking at new business models and emerging technologies. And you develop a real start-up project using entrepreneurial methods based on structured customer engagement, hypothesis building, prototyping, and pitching to investors — all in fast iterations. Studying texts and writing papers are really not the primary ways to learn about entrepreneurship. In this course, you instead work hands-on, in a team, developing a startup that solves a real problem.

Core Course Study Tours

This program travels on Study Tours to the following destinations:

  • Week-Long Study Tour: Berlin

  • Core Course Week: Southern Sweden

Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.
 
While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
