The syllabus will include guest lectures delivered by academics representing different continents. Prior to each session, students will be preparing for the visit by drawing together insights from the literature and developing Q&A sessions. With each guest academic, students will be expected to take some lead over the discussions and compare/contrast what they have learned previously with different global perspectives on enterprise and entrepreneurship.
In addition, students will reflect on the content of the sessions in relation to entrepreneurship in their home country, both in theory and practice.
