Objectives This seminar makes students reflect on the effects of entrepreneurship on the micro and macro level. On the micro level they reflect on entrepreneurship as a career option and its implications on their own and their families’ and friends’ well-being. On the macro level this course gives students an overview on the role entrepreneurship plays in the transformation of economies as well as for their competitiveness and growth. At the same time this course highlights the dark side of entrepreneurship on the micro level (e.g. entrepreneurial stress) and the macro level (e.g. inequality and social tensions).
Subject This seminar establishes a link between entrepreneurship and the life-word of each individual student. We will work on questions such as

  • What does entrepreneurship imply for my life and the life or relevant others?
  • What are the potentials of entrepreneurship to push responsible innovation and sustainable change for a more abundant world? And How can I tap these potentials?
  • What are the threats of an entrepreneurial economy and society? And how can I contribute to fighting these threats?
