Content and learning outcomes
This 12-credit module forms an integral part of the structured learning in entrepeneurship at KTH. The program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to immerse in Stockholm’s entrepreneurial environment by undergoing a 1-year internship at a technology-based company.
It involves writing a business case on the start-up process and challenges faced by the companies. It is intended to be a channel for (a) the application of concepts and frameworks learned in entrepreneurship courses to document the key process and challenges faced by real companies, (b) sharpening student’s observation, learning by questioning, and raising awareness of the broader business and strategic context, and (c) documentation of application of learning.
The module aims to (a) train the students in applying the entrepreneurship concepts and knowledge that they have learned in the classroom to real start-up companies, (b) sharpen the students’ understanding of the entrepreneurial process through interviewing senior managers of start-up companies and observing and understanding the challenges and issues faced by real start-up companies, and (c) crystallize their learning through writing a case.
Upon finishing the module, the students should be able to (a) write a good business case, and (b) apply the insight that they have acquired in a start-up or entrepreneurial situation.
Selective cases written by students may be used as teaching cases.
