Further Education CAS Entrepreneurship

We develop courses at university level in the field of continuing education. What knowledge and skills can be used to successfully tackle the rapid changes in entrepreneurship? As part of the CAS in entrepreneurship, we will answer these questions with an innovative programme concept. People who both want to learn how to be entrepreneurs in existing organisations and who are already entrepreneurs are equally addressed. The current course has been running since 31 October 2018. The next CAS starts in the End of October/Beginning of November 2019.
