The two-year master programme in entrepreneurship gives you in-depth knowledge in how to identify, formulate and implement projects for development of companies and society. The first year consists of courses that provide you with theoretical in-depth knowledge about business development and entrepreneurship as well as methodology courses with special focus on project work. In addition, the first semester will also include planning and start-up of a larger entrepreneurship project – which you will then carry out during the second semester on a separate project course.

The programme provides you with an in-depth understanding of, and ability to carry out, implementation and management of development projects within all sectors of society. This gives you opportunity to combine theory and practice on an advanced level. The unique breadth of the programme comprises entrepreneurship in both private and public sector as well as in civil society, and covers the change processes that take place in interplay between the different sectors. The pedagogy on the programme is based on problem-based learning. Great importance is attached to close collaboration with organisations from different sectors in society. You will gain an in-depth understanding of development and change processes in society – which is of high practical relevance since your knowledge will be applied to real-life cases.

Career

There is a great demand in all sectors for people who have the ability to lead change processes within established organisations, and in the role as project manager you are in demand on the labour market. What is more, the programme also prepares you for starting your own business – for creating your own employment, work situation, and lifestyle. The programme is also suited for you who wish to prepare yourself for future PhD studies.

You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus.
