You will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to analyse data, think critically about issues and make informed decisions; all skills that are needed for further study and employment.

Course content

The initial part of the course includes an introduction into how to become an entrepreneur as well as an introduction into money matters which gives you more knowledge on increasing profits, recruiting and managing employees, operations management plus marketing topics.
