Entrepreneurs and Businesses

Lecture content

The course “Entrepreneurs and businesses” aims to give first-semester students first insights into business administration on the basis of current practical business issues. Furthermore, the students are supposed to learn fundamental team and presentation skills.

For this purpose, during the lectures six different topic areas will be discussed by means of a wide variety of practical examples that are of importance to entrepreneurs and businesses (at the moment). In the tutorials those contents will be expanded upon and students will be taking a closer look from different perspectives by giving presentations about them.

In total there are seven lectures during the semester (one of the topic areas will be presented during two lectures). For each topic area there are two tutorials, which means that there are twelve tutorials in total.
