What?

Learn skills related to business and management, create your own business opportunity and develop a tailor-made business plan step by step

How?

Use a personal, practical business case to acquire the skills, that are theoretically taught.

"ideas are easy, but execution is everything"

= different modules, each covering the theoretical and practical steps of an important part of the business plan.

Course type

For Ghent University doctoral students, participation in this course will count as a specialist course and as a seminar in transferable skills (cluster: research & valorisation)

Why register?

This is an all-in-one plunge in the basics of business development/business skills. The theoretical principles are being immediately implemented in a practical environment, preferably a specific business case.

This summer school is complementary to existing entrepreneurial courses, in that case that if acts like an intensive boot camp, instead of the weekly courses e.g. under the 'durf ondernemen' flag. Within that context, the English language is – for international students – a surplus.

It covers main topics in a wide array of skills that are often lacking in the regular scientific master and doctoral school programs.

Registration

  • Free of charge for members of the Ghent University Doctoral Schools. However, participants that cancel their inscription 10 working days before the start of the course, will be charged €200, due to costs that are made in advance (course material, catering, ...).
  • For external people: €950 for the whole course
  • Register here before August 1st, 2017

If there are not enough people registered by August 1st, 2017 the course will be cancelled. At the latest by August, 5th, a decision will be taken whether or not the minimum criteria are achieved to organise the summer course
