Intended learning outcomes
After completion of the course the student should be able to:
- account for contemporary and classic theories on entrepreneurship
- account for the historical development of thoughts in the field of entrepreneurship
- criticize theories on entrepreneurship
- describe critical issues within the field of entrepreneurship in relation to related theoretical fields
- develop and refine an idea into a business plan
- make informed choices in developing plans and strategies for entrepreneurial ventures in different organizational contexts
- identify problems inherent in the creation of a new organization
The aim of the course is to deepen and widen the student’s knowledge and understanding about entrepreneurship, from a theoretical as well as a more practical point of view. Students will learn about perspectives on entrepreneurship, as well as requirements and pre-conditions for entrepreneurship in different organizational contexts.
The course content is based on three submodules:
- The development of the field of entrepreneurship and approaches to entrepreneurship is discussed
- The private context of entrepreneuriship is focused, the development of venture plans are discussed as well as analysis of the marketplace and competitive advantages
- Intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship in the public and non-profit contexts are focused, as well as strategies used by entrepreneurs in such contexts
Teaching and working methods
Students will learn through lectures, seminars and team work. Students are responsible for their own learning process, and lectures provide perspectives on the course content, thus giving an opportunity for students to facilitate the process of structuring the course content. Students may have to prepare tasks and assignments for seminars and team work. Language of instructions: English.
The course content will be examined through participation in team work, seminars, project work and a written examination. Detailed information about the examination can be found in the course’s study guide.
If the LiU coordinator for students with disabilities has granted a student the right to an adapted examination for a written examination in an examination hall, the student has the right to it. If the coordinator has instead recommended for the student an adapted examination or alternative form of examination, the examiner may grant this if the examiner assesses that it is possible, based on consideration of the course objectives.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
