Are you an entrepreneur? Do you have an innovative idea that can improve the world? Do you want to work for yourself and on your own?  Or contribute to a company by taking risks to shape change?

Then entrepreneurship is exactly your subject! In it, you deal with developing and managing a business venture to make a profit by taking multiple risks in the corporate world. You'll learn how it works to start a new business, grow it and scale it.

Entrepreneurships is playing an increasingly important role at German universities - not least because a whole series of unicorns (startups with a market valuation of at least €1 billion) have been created in the context of universities: Did you know that e.g. Zalando was founded by alumni of WHU Vallendar, Flixbus by alumni of TU Munich, Trivago by alumni of HHL Leipzig?
