Entrepreneurship education is available at every faculty at Utrecht University. These are courses, minors or complete programmes in which a entrepreneurial mindset is stimulated and entrepreneurial skills are taught. This does not necessarily mean that students have to create a venture - employers also demand these skills. The Centre for Entrepreneurship went 'back to school' and attended a lecture on Intrapreneurship.
Monday morning, a few minutes past ten. It is noisy in Spinoza 1.06, where the final lecture of the Intrapreneurship course takes place. The course is part of the master's programme Business Development & Entrepreneurship at the Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.). Students talk about their weekend in several different languages and wish each other good luck on their presentation. Today, they present what they have been working on for companies in the past few weeks.
Close to the deadline
“Alright, good morning! I’m so happy to see you all!” Lecturer Coen Rigtering sounds sincerely happy that almost all students are present. The lecture is not compulsory and is scheduled during the exam period. Students still have a few days before they have to submit their final report and the presentations and discussions make it clear that much remains to be done.
