This course introduces both theoretical frameworks and the practical application of international entrepreneurship, it focuses on both entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial action. The overall aim is to obtain a holistic as well as nuanced global perspective related to international entrepreneurship. The course will therefore explore the development of entrepreneurial ventures that are congruent with the global business environment and entrepreneurial strategies. This is then developed into an understanding of key factors and levers to enable international entrepreneurship.  Essentially the course comprises four themes: entrepreneurial opportunities, global expansion path, entrepreneurial decision making, and entrepreneurial mobility. 
By the end of the course students should be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of the key concepts, theories and issues in international entrepreneurship, with a focus on the analysis of the global business environment in which international entrepreneurs operate.
