Overview

Master Entrepreneurship as a specialization within the International Business programme at  Cologne Business School (CBS)

Food is no longer ordered over the phone but through an app. Payment transactions are carried out via an online service. The rail system found itself up against competition from long-distance buses – because founders had a good idea and the courage to legally make it happen. Start-ups can be successful in many industries, and a start-up community is emerging in more and more cities. But not every company is founded on immediate success. What factors influence success? Which personal qualities do you need? This is learnable.

Founding requires sound business knowledge

Anyone who establishes a company or enters a newly founded one needs comprehensive business administration skills. The prerequisite for taking up the Entrepreneurship Master’s Studies is a first academic degree in business economics. This is because we build upon your existing expertise and impart on you in-depth contents, which you should expect from a modern, challenging Master’s Degree. From you, we expect advanced English skills.

Digital thinking

Many start-ups are digital businesses. You will learn what kind of influence online and mobile have on business models but also how you can harness digital media. Many start-ups first received publicity through social media. The digital world also allows work to be distributed worldwide 24/7, thus enabling the formation of spontaneous, collaborative networks.
