1 The aim of the course is to comprehend and learn to analyze the management process related to business start-up, business growth, business internationalization and on success and failure factors in that regard. The course places a particular focus on start-ups and born globals.
The course concentrates on the specificities of start-ups, young SMEs and born globals and the role of entrepreneurship and strategy for such businesses. It builds on entrepreneurship theories, theories of the firm, strategic management and international business.
