This one-year Master's programme is designed for you who want to create and innovate by developing and launching new business ideas. During the first part of the programme you will get the opportunity to define and evaluate your own business idea, and write a full-fledged business plan you may turn into practice throughout the programme. You will also learn about what it takes to organise and grow a start-up venture, including expansion into foreign markets.

During the second part of the programme, you may opt for a tutored internship, which allows you to try out your own business idea or become involved in a development project in an already existing company or organisation. If you instead go for the continued coursework option, you will learn more about corporate entrepreneurship and what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur
and business developer.

Whatever your choice and preferences are, you will become part of the Uppsala Entrepreneurship Programme Alumni Network, and also be introduced to various sources of funding and incubators in the Uppsala ecosystem for start-ups. You will undoubtedly appreciate the group of multi-talented fellow students, who will inspire and support you throughout the programme and your future entrepreneurial career. The value of the personal network you will build during the programme is enormous.
