For those of you who want to work with project management, business development or entrepreneurship.
With a Top-up Bachelor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship, you will become a specialist in innovation, entrepreneurship and business development. This programme is for you who would like to master creative processes, project management, and entrepreneurship.
During the course of the programme, you will be working with idea generation and different business models, and master the financial perspectives of your work. You will learn about prototyping, go-to-market strategies, management, and entrepreneurial ecosystems and networks.
You will experience project-oriented teaching, which includes digital learning materials, group work, and individual assignments - all focused on your daily life as an entrepreneur and innovator. This prepares you for creating your own projects, life as an entrepreneur and for the various job types found within innovation and business development in established companies.
The programme consists of three semesters with mandatory parts in the form of obligatory courses and activities, and specialised parts in the form of elective courses, an internship, and a bachelor's project.
The programme is a 1½-years full-time study. This means that you are expected to actively take part in classes. The programme is equivalent to 90 ECTS-points, with each semester having its own course for completion with attendant tests and exams.
Courses mainly consist of thematically-based projects, workshops, and camps. There are written assignments and various activities in connection with teaching, for example, guest lectures and an internship.
The themes and workshops are based on collaboration with external companies or cases. Therefore, you are expected to be well prepared and to participate actively in course activities.
During this semester you learn to develop and execute business opportunities in new and existing companies and to implement innovation processes. You have the opportunity to build a personal network and work on the sustainable development of a new or existing company, just as you learn to relate to the connection between resources, relationships, processes, and results.
In this semester you will learn to develop and evaluate business models based on external and market conditions in relation to your professional knowledge. You can challenge existing models, develop new, sustainable business models, and combine both traditional and innovative models based on the social, cultural and economic interests of customers. In practice, you work on planning and executing specific initiatives within business development. In the electives, you can specialize in the direction you are interested in.
You will continue even further with specialisation in the third and last semester of the programme. You will be able to test your abilities in practice through your internship in either your own or an existing innovative company. You are responsible for finding your own place of internship.
The internship is completed with a bachelor’s project.
As a student at UCL University College, it is also possible to create an international profile during your studies. Depending on your chosen programme you can go on short international modules, study a semester or do your internship abroad, and participate in international projects.
The knowledge and insights that come from international experiences, as you encounter cultures of other countries, can be useful for more than personal enrichment. Such insights may also make you highly attractive to the Danish and international job markets.
Going abroad is an adventure, which will equip you with skills and experiences for life. You will develop yourself both professionally and personally, and you have a great opportunity to make friends and a network abroad.
One of the things that characterise the study programmes at UCL University College is that you will receive an education that emphasises practical experience. Amongst other things, you will work on practical cases in class, and work on projects with real businesses. The most practically-oriented part of the study is the internship, which is an integrated part of all study programmes at UCL.
The internship is your chance to use and test your knowledge and theory in the 'real world'. The internship also gives you the opportunity to test, what exactly you want to do with your degree once graduated.
When the time comes for you to find your first job as a graduate, you will because of a strong internship not only have theoretical knowledge, but also important experience of how it is to work in your specific field of interest.
The programme gives you three end goals, depending on which electives you choose. You will be able to handle change processes and run development projects as a project manager in a private company or public organisation as an intrapreneur, work as a cultural and social project manager or you can create your very own business as an entrepreneur.
