The Corporate Entrepreneurship track will focus on the role and skills of a corporate entrepreneur – to equip the students with tools needed to act entrepreneurially and successfully navigate in a corporate setting within the organizational complexity, rules and processes of a large cooperation – that on the one hand offers large amount of resources for innovation and development, but at the same time demands much from the individuals in terms of entrepreneurial skills to succeed.
Many global and large firms are facing intense competition and need to innovate at a faster pace to succeed on the global markets. The challenges for established firms is to create and launch innovative products, services and offers, more often, to stay competitive.

With improved entrepreneurial behaviour in large firms we may see more high-risk with high-reward innovations, and organizations enable to re-new their capabilities.
