About

We are looking for motivated students who want to fulfill their potential as entrepreneurs and who cannot wait to manage their family business or are willing to build their own success with a great idea by creating a startup. 

Structure of the course

The two years of the Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano combine practice and theory. A good example of this is the Entrepreneurship Workshop during which you can develop and plan your business idea, applying to a real project what you learnt in the classroom.

In the Lean Start-Up Course, instead, you will learn:

  • how to give shape to your business idea
  • researching the market 
  • developing your product.

Besides your internship, you will be able to undertake study trips. Last year, for example, our students went to Toulouse to discover its network of innovative businesses and start-ups. They visited Airbus and spoke to venture capitalists in order to learn how to present their projects better to potential investors.

Career opportunities

Our graduates will be able to start and manage a business. You can offer your services as a Project Manager for the development of new products and for the management of innovation in existing businesses or progress further in higher education with a Master degree or a PhD.

Well prepared and ready for the job market. On the website of Alma Laurea you can check statistical data about graduates’ satisfaction and their employability.
