Entrepreneurship and Action Based Methods

15 credits

The course offers an introduction to action based methods and their application in business administration. The methods discussed and practiced within the framework of the course are based on collaboration between researchers and other groups in society. Central for these methods are how to facilitate the collaboration through participation, communication and a well-functioning dialogue. The course will be taught in the spirit of action based methods and therefore the learning will be a process of mutual exchange between students, teachers and the representatives from businesses, organizations or communities. Together with these representatives the students plan a development project for a business, an organization or a local community based on action based methods.
