Please note: The course is taught across faculties and therefore brings different examination regulations:
  • BCI students taking the course receive ECTS for lecture + business plan in group work as an examination credit. By participating in the exercises, additional ECTS can be earned in the form of a participation certificate
  • All other students have to pass the written exam (duration 90 minutes)

Please note that the event title has changed from "Technology Oriented Entrepreneurship" to "Introduction to Entrepreneurship". This is mainly a title adjustment and does not affect the content of the course. This means that
  • Students who have already passed "Technology Oriented Entrepreneurship" cannot take the module a second time with the new title.
  • Students who have not passed "Technology Oriented Entrepreneurship" will have to take the follow-up course.
According to the current status, the event will take place in person. Further details will be announced in the Moodle course. Please register there for the course to get the latest in­for­mation.

Contents overview

Over the course of the semester, the course "Introduction to Entrepreneurship" takes students through the various steps and challenges of the entire start-up process: from the initial idea to market launch and establishment. Basic patterns of thought and action (theoretical concepts) for technology-oriented start-ups are introduced. In particular, various functional aspects of developing and creating, evaluating and successfully exploiting technological opportunities are addressed. The business plan as a central element is taught so that students can deliver their ideas qualitatively and quantitatively. Students learn to generate ideas and evaluate them. Creating business models and a business plan is taught. Students also learn to calculate the business value and profitability of companies and / or individual projects. Imparted theoretical foundations will be complemented by practical guest lecturer presentations and a panel discussion with inspiring entrepreneurs. On Saturdays free pizza will be available for all students during the lunch break!
