Start-up Development (MBA)


Innovations from your own stable

In many companies, undiscovered potential and talents lie dormant that can achieve great things with a little impetus, freedom and support. Corporate entrepreneurship offers advantages for everyone: company management benefits from committed employees who drive innovation on their own initiative. The intrapreneurs, in turn, can pursue their ideas and creativity - with the security of a permanent position. A win-win situation.

An entrepreneurial mindset is a basic prerequisite for successful start-ups - and the key to innovative strength in established companies. As internal drivers of innovation, corporate entrepreneurs today are crucial for progress and therefore for the future viability and sustainable development of a company.

Improve your competitiveness and meet the diverse demands of the market by utilising the knowledge and ideas of your employees. Promote innovation and turn your team into intrapreneurs who actively contribute to shaping your company through targeted further training.

Promoting entrepreneurial spirit through intrapreneurship

As the skills of an intrapreneur and their intrinsic motivation differ greatly from those of an average employee, this requires a targeted qualification. Our four-semester Start-up Development (MBA) programme combines the strengths of your company with the innovative power of your employees - underpinned by the latest scientific expertise. The change of perspective teaches intrapreneurs to develop an entrepreneurial mindset, to realise untapped potential and to quickly validate and implement new ideas. Your employees will be qualified to recognise future challenges and trends, act in a solution-oriented manner and thus implement the results in your company.

  • The degree programme with its semi-virtual teaching concept is perfectly tailored to working students: teaching takes place between Monday and Thursday in the early evening hours and on selected dates at the weekend as block courses.
  • The MBA programme deepens students' entrepreneurial understanding, equips them with innovation management tools and strengthens their leadership skills. The modules qualify students to develop solution-orientated management skills and put theory into practice:
    Students systematically evaluate opportunities, work on their own innovative idea and are supported and advised by our innovation experts.

  • The students bring in real topics and challenges of their company and can develop solutions and implement them directly in their own company.

  • Students and their companies benefit from the university's wide-ranging, cross-industry network and the Start-up-Manufaktur.
  • Methodological expertise at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences combined with the latest knowledge from science and (start-up) practice
  • We value and promote diversity. When selecting students, we therefore attach great importance to intrinsically motivated talents with a wide range of professional experience. This opens up multi-layered perspectives and approaches to solving professional issues among the students.
