Excerpt from course description

Internship in your own start-up company


In combination with BTH 3668 Bachelor Thesis Entrepreneurship (15 credits) this course will constitute a specialization of 30 credits. It will be stated on the diploma that it is a specialization. It applies to students on the Bachelor Programme in Business Administration, Marketing Management, Creative Industries Management and Retail Management. The course may also be chosen by other students as an elective in their third year of study.

The objective with the internship program is to give students the opportunity to combine work to scale their own start-up company, with guidance towards an academic assignment with a self-chosen curriculum towards the end of the semester. Students are given the opportunity to use theories and models they have learned to solve specific tasks in their own business, thus experiencing the relevance of their academic knowledge. At the same time, we practice in this course active application of reflection and learning systematically. The students become more aware of their own actions and patterns, and that the dialogue with the other students in the course increases the learning outcomes for the individual.

We require the start up company to be registered and consider each application individually.
