Together the five of us have established SSES, our joint school devoted to offering our students education, training and inspiration in applied entrepreneurship. So, if you are a student of ours: a special welcome! If not, check out our events and seminars.


Our courses are designed by, and recognised as internal courses, at all five member schools. This means that you will study the art of applied entrepreneurship in interdisciplinary groups with students from different backgrounds and that any gained ECTS credits will be counted towards your degree.

The courses are split into three categories: core courses, context courses and skills courses.

Core courses follow the four stages of the venture creation process, from pre-idea to managing a growing business. Even though they are independent from one another, they are designed to be taken one after another, starting with Ideation, followed by Business Model Innovation, Execution and finally Growth.

Context courses look at a subject in the context of a specific area or industry, such as design, biotech and developing countries. They are open to students from all backgrounds, but if you have an interest in a specific topic or a desire to gain a level of specialisation this will be an advantage when undertaking these courses.

Skills courses aim to teach practical techniques covering a variety of skill sets, such as negotiation and financing. The aim is for you to have the skill, experience and understanding to hit the ground running once you leave the classroom.
