The course ‘Corporate Entrepreneurship’ focuses on the processes by which teams within an established company conceive, foster, launch and manage a new business that is different from the parent company. The ability to simultaneously balance strategic and financial considerations is crucial to the success of any corporate entrepreneurship effort. As an advanced course, emphasis will be placed on the skills needed to promote and manage corporate entrepreneurship including opportunity recognition, management of human resources, and ambidexterity. The course places a strong emphasis on active learning through case studies.
