|Program:||MSc Strategic Entrepreneurship|
Why did you decide for the MSc Strategic Entrepreneurship at RSM?
I wanted to meet people like myself who have an entrepreneurial mindset and expand my network. RSM is ranked high among the European universities and I felt that the MSc Strategic Entrepreneurship offered by RSM is unique.
What did you like the most?
I would say my favourite part of the programme were my classmates; they were all interesting and fun people. The most interesting part of my study was the entrepreneurial theory in practice course. For the group assignment, we needed to work in teams of four and choose an emerging industry, and then interview at least six entrepreneurs in this area to study what it takes to start and grow a business. It helped us become familiar with the entrepreneurship theory in real life situations by getting in touch with real entrepreneurs. We also acquired practical skills, such as interviewing, collecting secondary data and writing reports for non-academic audiences.
What was special about RSM?
In my master we had a group of about 40 students and everyone knew each other on first name basis. There were lots of activities within the group and people were open-minded, best of all, they were all very entrepreneurial-oriented. The class was quite active. We had various guest lectures, which was a great opportunity to meet entrepreneurs and learn from them.
