Entrepreneurial activities allow firms to remain competitive, they can create economic growth and innovation, and they can solve societal problems.You learn to understand the role SMEs and entrepreneurial firms are playing in the modern entrepreneurial economy, more importantly, the strategic and managerial challenges small business owners and entrepreneurs face. Many management programmes focus on large businesses, whereas SMEs and entrepreneurial firms have specific characteristics. You will learn about them and how small business owners and entrepreneurs can effectively manage their businesses in an increasingly complex business environment.You will link the specific theories on SMEs and entrepreneurship to practice by means of assignments and guest lectures.
