If you are creative and have always known that you will lead an extraordinary life, the intensive one-year Master Programme in Entrepreneurship at Uppsala University is for you. The programme enables you to create and develop new business ideas, in your own start-up company or as a business developer in an already existing company or organisation.

About

The Master Programme in Entrepreneurship at Uppsala University prepares you for a future as creator of your own company or as a business developer in already existing companies and organisations.

The programme allows you to develop your business skills, and above all to understand and manage the inevitable challenges that come with the launching and development of new business ideas. The programme design lets you apply the theories and tools that are taught in a real-life setting. You will be asked to develop a full-fledged business plan either for your own business idea or for an idea conceived by an inventor or company in the Uppsala region. You will also be able to do an internship that allows you to apply your acquired entrepreneurial skills through participation in a live entrepreneurial or development project.

You will enjoy the variety of backgrounds among the programme participants, which gives you access to the diverse skills and competencies that may be needed for your own entrepreneurial ventures. The relationships and personal network you will build with other programme participants will be very valuable for your future entrepreneurial and business career.

Career

Your acquired business savvy and entrepreneurial skills will give you a unique profile and edge in whatever you decide to do in the future. You may choose the path of a company founder to develop and grow your own firm, or work for the development of already established companies or organisations. As a company founder, you will launch and develop your own business idea, often together with others in an entrepreneurial team. Within already established companies and organisations you will work as a business developer, either by promoting your own entrepreneurial ideas or by being in charge of the company’s collective business development activities.
