About the school

our mission statement

To be known as a progressive interdisciplinary institution for reflecting on responsibility and social challenges in research and teaching.

Advancing knowledge, entrepreneurial thinking, and responsible action for business and society.

Our understanding of entrepreneurship

We understand entrepreneurship as a key competence to identify, seize and create opportunities that challenge existing and often unquestioned structures and thus create economic, ecological or social added value. Entrepreneurship expresses itself in the form of projects. These can include, for example, the establishment of a start-up, but also the implementation of an innovation in an existing organization. The aim of such projects is to solve practical problems and gain new insights.
