Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship

Lund University School of Economics and Management

Entrepreneurship Summer School

Course Overview

This course is for you who either have an existing idea you wish to exploit or for you who perhaps just haven’t recognized the perfect opportunity just yet. The entrepreneurship summer school is an action oriented and theoretically founded course in entrepreneurship. Together, we explore various stages of the entrepreneurial process from ideation to customer discovery to firm finance.  
 
Our action oriented pedagogical approach coupled with an emphasis upon theory and reflection supports you throughout the process of learning.  We believe this approach, places you as a new or nascent entrepreneur in a unique position to know how to be an entrepreneur, but also explore, understand and become informed about the reasons and the consequences behind your entrepreneurial activities and actions.
 
Each day during the course we will enjoy at least a half day participating in seminars, workshops and working on your own projects. During the course you will also participate in study and field trips as well as other cultural and social activities.
