To enroll, register for the course with the Campus Management system during the registration period (note: limited number of participants).
The event is designed as a "blended-learning" course so that it comprises several in-class and online components, and teamwork phases.
This module is aimed at students in the Master program "Information Systems". Interested Master students of other Master programs may send an email to Janina Sundermeier to clarify the conditions for a possible participation.
The aim of the course "IT Entrepreneurship" is to transfer skills and competencies to develop a business model for a promising business idea, and to validate and present the idea appropriately to an expert audience. Students also learn how to create a customary bank business plan and receive valuable tips from experienced industry partners regarding this context.
Elementary components of a customary bank business plan are taught using video lectures with subsequent quizzes. Particularly relevant topics are expanded on with guest lectures held by experts. During periodic conversations with experts, the students have the possibility to ask specific questions regarding the development phases of their business models for discussion.
In teams made up of 2 - 4 master students (depending on the seminar size), the students develop a business plan for a self-chosen business idea. In addition, individual teams with suitable business plans are supported in participating at the Berlin Brandenburg Business Plan Competition.
The following topics will be covered:
After successfully completing the course, the students are able to critically reflect on partial decisions coming up during start-up projects. In addition, the students develop sufficient skills for presenting the results from these processes as a written paper and orally in front of a mixed (expert and non-expert) audience.
The lectures will take place in room HS108a (Garystraße 21). Some lectures will be replaced by video based lectures and group working phases. The exact time table will be announced at the beginning of the semester and can then be looked up in the course catalog. The time span of the lecture is from 24 Oct 2018 until 28 Mar 2019.
