Minor Entrepreneurship

Here you will find all descriptions of courses in the minor. Please go to www.minor.vu.nl/en/ for more information about the contents of the minor programme.

In FEWEB’s minor in entrepreneurship, students not only study
entrepreneurs but also become entrepreneurs. This minor is an exciting
set of carefully selected courses that are designed to offer students
fundamental knowledge about entrepreneurship in different contexts and
enhance their entrepreneurial skill sets. The knowledge students gain
from this minor is extremely valuable in today’s labor markets, because
career success increasingly depends on students’ capacity to be
proactive, promote change, and pursue new entrepreneurial initiatives
that create economic and/or social value. Specifically, completing the
minor will allow students to better appreciate the different forms of
entrepreneurship across various contexts, understand the distinct
challenges faced by entrepreneurs, and find creative solutions for
overcoming these challenges. Indeed, both startup and corporate
entrepreneurs often struggle to launch and grow new business ventures
such that knowledge about how to successfully develop new
entrepreneurial initiatives is essential to any student. So if you are
thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, this is definitely the minor
for you. But also if you do not have plans to go in that direction, this
minor is worthwhile because knowledge of entrepreneurship is critical to
anyone who interacts in significant ways with entrepreneurs including
managers in large established firms, consultants, bankers, and
government policy makers.

This minor contains 5 compulsory courses. Instead of the courses Filming
Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation you may choose to do an
internship. Note that the internship has to be approved by the minor
coordinator in advance.
