Entrepreneurship is on the rise in China and around the world. This class covers the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and analyzes the unique challenges and opportunities for startups in a rapidly changing China. The two company visits for this course will give you an inside view in the business environment in Shanghai. The cases cover a wide range of business issues, mostly focused on businesses in China. The course will help you think like an entrepreneur, an approach to business that will be as useful for a leadership role in a large MNC as it is for starting your own business anywhere in the world.

This course is taught at Fudan University (Shanghai,China) as part of the China Europe International Summer School (CEISS). CEISS is a collaboration between Fudan University (China), Peking Universtiy(China), Utrecht University (Netherlands), Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Italy) and Edvance Education International (China), offering summer courses that explore the world's main economic, social and political trends and themes and the way they impact on the economies and societies of Europe and China.
