Course description:
The course module Entrepreneurship is conceived to strengthen the student’s mindset and capabilities in developing independent projects, and to help them form an understanding of what a sustainable life with performing arts might consist of. The course plan is structured so to allow the student to become exposed to three different entryways into entrepreneurship:

  • Entrepreneurship as mindset – how do I see myself as an entrepreneur and an artistic entrepreneur?
  • Entrepreneurship as value creating work – how do I locate values in my projects
  • Entrepreneurship as a tool – what concrete tools of professionalization should I know?

The course will focus on creating a concrete and useable bank of material and knowledge, which the student can employ in other projects, processes and in the future life as a professional.  

The course rotates between class lectures, presentations and exercises:

  • Identify value potential in various processes with the purpose of working development-orientated in connection with the surrounding world.
  • Put selected entrepreneurial tools to use with the purpose of professionalizing idea development, communication, networking and project management.
