In recent years, academic entrepreneurship education has shifted from the exclusive domains of business administration and economics to many other domains as well. In April/May 2019, entrepreneurship is taught for the first time to students of the master Computer Science (joint degree of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) and the University of Amsterdam, (UvA) and the master Artificial Intelligence (VU), in the form of this new elective, loading 6 credits.
The coordinator of this elective is Prof. Enno Masurel (School of Business and Economics, VU). He says: “With five experienced lecturers and guest speakers and more than 40 highly motivated students we will make this elective a great success.”
This is the 5th entrepreneurship elective in beta sciences at the VU, next to Entrepreneurship for Physicists, Entrepreneurship in Data Science and Analytics, Entrepreneurship in Human Movement Sciences and Entrepreneurship in Biomedical Physics and Technology. These five courses are clearly different, as they are applied to their own disciplines, but they all use the same format. Approximately 150 students take part in these courses in 2019.
Look for this entrepreneurship elective at the VU website.
