In this course we look at entrepreneurial and innovation processes from a micro and macro perspective. The micro perspective looks at how people become more innovative and emphasizes on creativity as a major source for innovation. Departing from this micro perspective we look how individual behavior aggregates to the macro level and study innovation from an organizational and economic system perspective. The course is characterized by a wide set of different meeting formats. Next to the classical tutorial meetings, guest lectures inform the student on current innovation challenges in business practice, in workshops students and the consulting project meetings students will enhance their skill sets.
