Course content

The aim of the course is to deepen and widen the student’s knowledge and understanding about entrepreneurship and it’s role for organizational change.

Students will learn about organizational perspectives on entrepreneurship, as well as entrepreneurship perspectives on organizations. Classic as well as contemporary views on entrepreneurship and organizational change are elaborated in the course, as well as organizational change and entrepreneurship in different sectoral and national contexts. We will go into depth in for example the following areas;
- Entrepreneurship as means and ends for organizational and structural change in western economies and on emerging markets in the global economy.
- The societal construction of entrepreneurship vs diversity and change in organizations.
- Intrapreneurship and Employee-Driven-Innovation (EDI) vs managed change.
- Methodologies for understanding and supporting entrepreneurship and organizational change on different levels of analysis.

Teaching and working methods

Students will learn through reading and reflecting on articles and books from different perspectives, as well as through seminars, lectures, guest-lectures and team assignments. Students are responsible for their own learning process, and lectures provide perspectives on the course content, thus giving an opportunity for students to facilitate the process of structuring the course content. Students have to prepare tasks and 
assignments for seminars and work individually and in teams. Language of instruction is Swedish.

Examination

The course content is examined continuously during the course, through group assignments reported in writing and orally during seminars, as well as through a written individual examination at the end of the course.

If the LiU coordinator for students with disabilities has granted a student the right to an adapted examination for a written examination in an examination hall, the student has the right to it. If the coordinator has instead recommended for the student an adapted examination or alternative form of examination, the examiner may grant this if the examiner assesses that it is possible, based on consideration of the course objectives.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
