The lecture "Entrepreneurship" provides students with knowledge of important concepts and models of entrepreneurship. Students will acquire in-depth theoretical knowledge on:

  • Definitions and special forms of entrepreneurship in a complex and uncertain environment
  • Entrepreneurial individuals, including their personality, creativity, idea development, cognition, opportunity recognition, decision making, and affect
  • Entrepreneurial firms, including their growth strategies, strategic alliances, and resources.



First, students will know and be able to explain basic concepts of entrepreneurship including basic definitions, psychological processes and characteristics of the person of the entrepreneur, and potential development paths of young firms. Second, students will transfer this basic knowledge to real world cases. Thus, students will be able to solve entrepreneurial problems in real world settings drawing on theoretical frameworks of the entrepreneurial process.
