The Master in Entrepreneurship program has been specifically designed to fit the needs of future entrepreneurs. Thus, besides an optimum portfolio of courses, we have added a number of special features that will help you accelerate your business ideas.
Right from the beginning of your studies you will have courses that cover the most important entrepreneurial skills. You will experience entrepreneurship from a startup perspective, from a corporate perspective and also take the viewpoint of the market and investors. Furthermore, those courses will be held in Berlin and Düsseldorf. So you will also get into contact with the entrepreneurial network and ecosystem of WHU right away.
WHU has established a partnership with Le Wagon, the leading coding school with the mission of bringing technical skills to creative people. As part of the Master in Entrepreneurship curriculum, WHU sponsors 10 places to selected students to attend Le Wagon's renowned nine-week bootcamp program. The bootcamp fits seamlessly into the Master in Entrepreneurship program, counting as the internship that runs from May after the first year of study.
During the bootcamp, participants will be a part of the perfect developer set-up, learning about software engineering and database architecture, the technical workflow used in successful startups, and gain experience in tools such as Ruby, Heroku, Stripe, Mandrill, and Algolia to deploy an app of their creation.
During the design of this program, we talked to a lot of entrepreneurs and managers to get feedback from the market about the skills future entrepreneurs will need. One topic that was always mentioned was software development or coding. That is why we will offer one elective course on the topic but also have a special feature: a cooperation with Codecademy, the leading platform for coding worldwide. You will have the opportunity to take courses from Codecademy in addition to your normal lectures at WHU. Thereby, you will be able to select from a wide variety of programming languages and IT skills that fit your specific needs.
We want you to really build your business idea. For this reason we have designed another great feature: an internship as a startup team! During your usual internship period (May to July) you will have the chance to work on your own business idea: Given that it has high quality and matches the topics and requirements of a corporate or investor partner of our program, startup teams from WHU will get the unique experience to work within the framework of a partner and learn within that setting. This could even be your chance for a first investment!
At the end of the program, students will have the opportunity to present their ideas and business models at a final Demo Day in Berlin for German and international investors.
International experience is a crucial element of integrated management training at WHU because students are able to benefit from a wider range of teaching methods, cultures, and customs. The Master of Science Programs offer many international opportunities, including our study abroad program in the 120 credit track where students are enrolled in the Master or MBA program at the chosen partner university.
Our students have access to a unique partnership network of around 200 partner universities located on every continent of the world.
