Entrepreneurship Track

More and more, companies are looking for people who not only understand their own academic discipline but also have a basic understanding of business and entrepreneurship. Strange? Not at all! All sorts of business start with an idea, be it in arts, communication, design, food, gaming, health care, life science, mobility... But in order to be viable some basic elements must be in place like (product) development, communication, management, persuasion, financing and also selling.

This track comprises of four courses in which students learn about different aspects of business and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship has become an essential topic in any curriculum not just an economics or business curriculum. Throughout the years we have hosted (international) students with a background in technical engineering, medicine, biomedical science, law, arts etc... Each of them coming to Utrecht University realizing that the entrepreneurial mindset and skills will benefit them in their future careers.
