The increasing demand for high-quality continuing education for graduates of other subjects as well as for specialists and managers has led us to establish and offer programmes and specialisation modules concerning the subject of entrepreneurship.

In line with our vision, we follow a process approach in the dissemination of knowledge. Scientifically sound concepts for the development of new products, services and organisations provide the basis for continuing education courses. University lecturers and proven experts with a practical background complement each other in the application-driven dissemination of knowledge. This includes renowned educational partners such as the SwissEconomicForum.

The development and establishment of continuing education courses on entrepreneurship for entrepreneurs in Bern is made possible through generous sponsoring support.
