In July & August 2018, Maastricht School of Management offers you the opportunity to follow up to four intensive summer courses to become ‘certified in management.’ You can apply for either one of these two-week courses or for all four. The third of the series courses is on "Entrepreneurship and Innovation".

The Entrepreneurship and Innovation course will be delivered at the Student Hotel Campus (TSH) “Marina” in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Barcelona, Spain. The Student Hotel serves students throughout Europe. They know that today’s students are eager to learn and to develop. Preferably while having fun exploring the world. The Certified in Management program of MSM caters to that appetite.

Course aim

Course aim
The "Entrepreneurship and Innovation" course is one of the four two-week summer intensive Certified in Management courses we offer. In the other three courses you will touch on some other interesting important pillars of management – Cultural Diversity (Eindhoven), Marketing (Barcelona), and Economics (Barcelona). You can choose how many of the 4 courses (3 ECTS each) you want to follow.

* Each course starts with four class days in which lectures and case discussions are used to introduce the main theoretical insights and to explore how these insights can inform managerial practice.
* In the second week of each course we extend the “lecture room” into the city: you may expect the final course assignments to require you to interact with businesses and/or entrepreneurs in Barcelona. For each course, you will have to document your lessons learned in a paper.

Successful completion of this program requires a substantial commitment.
