Lecture series "Innovative entrepreneurs"

Hear innovative entrepreneurs live

The lecture series "Innovative entrepreneurs" enables you to meet outstanding managers, entrepreneurs, executives and founders of businesses in person. The guest speakers will provide an insight into their work and give you a basic understanding of how to found and manage technology-based and growth-oriented businesses. While it will be all about starting a business in the summer semester, the focus in the winter semester will be on managing and leading large and medium-sized companies.

If you want to learn how to think outside the box and complement theory by an insight into practice, this lecture series will be the right place for you!

How you will benefit:
  • Developing a feeling and understanding for entrepreneurship and the context of management and economics
  • Learning from the experience of entrepreneurial personalities
  • Taking a look behind the scenes of large and medium-sized businesses in their capacity as potential employers
  • Concerning oneself with own skillset and entrepreneurial identity

For this lecture we have unfortunately no places left.
