About:

Today we all acknowledge that global society face a number of challenges that need new and creative solutions. We need to learn how to handle uncertainties and unpredictable situations in a productive and progressive way. To cope with these challenges and uncertainties there is a call for more entrepreneurial knowledge and skills.

This course contains online lectures on five different occasions and individual work. At the end of the course there will be a two-day hackathon on site in Lund, Sweden when the students will work in teams with the task to deliver a solution to a challenge.

Students will receive a scholarship to meet their costs for travel and living. More information on travel arrangements, accommodation etc. will be sent to accepted students. (LU students participating in the course will not receive the scholarship.)

Objectives:

The course Entrepreneurial Skills aims to:

  • introduce students to the development process of an entrepreneurial project
  • introduce students to the entrepreneurial mindset that is needed for the development process to take place
  • introduce students to the dynamics of teamwork.

Voices from past participants:

"I liked the opportunity to study a different topic and to work with people from different countries and with different backgrounds."

"Anything that has to do with the outside world interests me. I love to get to know other countries, other ways of thinking and living, and this is exactly what I found at the final hackathon in Lund, Sweden. Everything was perfect from start to finish. The online course was very well structured, where we were free to give our opinion and thus we could think more calmly."

"First of all, the content exposed was interesting and useful with just the right balance between theory and practice, as several examples were usually included in the modules.Thus, this addition allowed us to have a more holistic view of the entrepreneurial process."
