The Faculty of Business and Economics has set itself the goal of being the central economic entrepreneurship competence on campus and in the region. To promote the start-up culture, we offer – also in cooperation with various faculties of the RUB, the Worldfactory and other partners from science and industry – numerous teaching and further education programmes, advisory and networking opportunities. With our integrative “Bochum Model”, which combines business and economics expertise, we also support the interdisciplinary development of our students and researchers into entrepreneurial personalities. In this way, together with the active start-up scene in the Metropole Ruhr, we create a transfer of knowledge and technology in business, science and society.

Block Events

The module focuses on teaching soft skills as well as professional competences that are fundamental for success in the field of entrepreneurship. Students learn what requirements are placed on entrepreneurs and promising business ideas in practice. Students are supported in working out these requirements and preparing for their own start-up. Concrete methods are taught that are relevant for the practical implementation of start-up ideas. This gives students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of the term entrepreneurship. In doing so, they critically and well-foundedly deal with their personal motivation to become an entrepreneur themselves in the future.
Prof. Dr. Michael Roos, Nicholas Schmidt

The main focus of this course is to consider and discuss entrepreneurial behavior, including approaches to creativity, opportunity recognition, failure, and the entrepreneurial environment. This course thus focuses not on the ‘how’ of entrepreneurship, but on the ‘what’ and the ‘why’. It considers theories on the nature of entrepreneurship that explain entrepreneurial success and how entrepreneurship relates to innovation.

Studierende beschäftigen sich in interdisziplinären Teams ideen- und lösungsorientiert mit Unternehmensgründungen auf Basis von Themen aus der Praxis. Zum Abschluss pitchen die Teams ihre Gründungsidee mit Geschäftsmodell, so wie es in der Berufswelt und bei der Investorensuche heute alltäglich ist. Die Methodik der Spring School entspricht den Bedarfen des Arbeitsmarktes, da in Unternehmen immer stärker agile Projektmanagementtechniken angewendet werden, die eine aktive Kommunikation unabhängig von den eigentlichen Professionen erfordern.

In this module, students deal with the economic significance of entrepreneurship and the role of the entrepreneur. The main focus is on founding a company (entrepreneurship), but also on entrepreneurial action in existing companies (intrapreneurship). In this module, entrepreneurs are related to top athletes. Entrepreneurial success and success in top-class sport are partly based on similar personal resources and ways of acting. By comparing entrepreneurs and top athletes, students gain a deeper understanding of the success factors of entrepreneurial action.
