Why you should study Entrepreneurship
As an academic, you have very high chances of working in better-paid positions, you are more secure and you are more flexible in planning your career. A degree provides you with skills that will prepare you for a successful career and give you better career opportunities. Sometimes, only a degree course can lead to a certain profession and it provides you with technical skills that are useful for your future profession. Apart from that, people with a degree are less affected by unemployment.
This is how your Entrepreneurship studies at the IU look like
From the very beginning, entrepreneurial projects are set up, which you plan and execute during the bachelor's programme. What is most important to us is your "entrepreneurial mindset", i.e. thinking like a founder - and acting accordingly. In addition, we also strengthen your motivation and self-assertion skills, and get you ready for important presentations. During your studies you can specialise even more. Depending on your interests, you can choose from four topics: Digital entrepreneurship (user testing and prototyping), Social entrepreneurship (for the social economy and non-profit organisations), Sustainable entrepreneurship (business ethics and sustainability) or Intrapreneurship (organisational development and change management).
Outlook for the future: What you will do after your studies
You will learn methodological and practical skills in the areas of business idea development, start-up financing and business model development. As an entrepreneur and founder, you will have the best conditions to turn your ideas and business plans into success. Or to establish them in companies as a valuable source of impetus for new products or business models.
The most important questions about studying Entrepreneurship
A numerus clausus (NC) is not an issue at the IU, we allow studying without NC. We prefer to look together with you at where your strengths and talents lie, so that you can really study exactly what adds value to you and your environment. Accordingly, there is no NC with us. If you meet all the other requirements (see table and further FAQs), nothing can prevent you from making a successful start for your future.
You can study Entrepreneurship in the following locations: Berlin and Bad Honnef (starting in October 2022). Furthermore, you can study at the Virtual Campus, which makes it possible to study anywhere in Germany and in a completely flexible way.
Yes, we also make that possible at the IU. In addition to the entrance qualification in form of an Abitur or Fachabitur, prospective students without an Abitur also have the opportunity to enter our bachelor’s programme. You can study Entrepreneurship without an Abitur if you have completed an advanced training course (e.g. as an IHK business administrator) have a master craftsman's certificate or have at least two years of vocational training and at least three years of professional experience building on this.
The course takes 36, 48 or 72 months, depending on the time model you choose. If you need more time and semesters for your studies, this is also absolutely no problem.
