Teaching and learning

The master’s programme focuses on the process of recognising, testing, validating and exploiting opportunities for value creation. This approach encompasses blended value in terms of the balancing economic, social and environmental sustainability all of which are given attention throughout the programme.

Our pedagogy is based on the approach that you need to practice and take action 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 that our programme in entrepreneurship and innovation embraces action & reflection, without compromising the valuable learning that comes from theory.

Your own start-up project – Acting as the vehicle for your learning throughout the programme is your own start-up project. You will form teams of 2-5 in your pursuit to test, validate and exploit/launch your start-up projects. You can read more about previous start-up projects here:
