Structure of the course

The two years of the course in the Bozen-Bolzano campus combine practice and theory. A good example of this is the Entrepreneurship Workshop during which you can develop and plan your business idea, applying to a real project what you learnt in the classroom.

In the Lean Start-Up Course, instead, you will learn how to give shape to your business idea, researching the market and developing your product.

Besides your internship, you will be able to undertake study trips. Last year, for example, our students went to Toulouse to discover its network of innovative businesses and start-ups. They visited Airbus and spoke to venture capitalists in order to learn how to present their projects better to potential investors.

In addition, every year unibz takes part in the Start-Up Weekend, an intense 54-hour session targeting future entrepreneurs. This event is part of a global initiative involving more than 100 countries everywhere in the world.

Daniel Kaneider

Start-up creator, Bozen - Bolzano

I had always dreamt of having my own business. Thanks to the courses I attended and to constant support from my supervisors, I was able to start a business called Wams. What do we do? We make wool socks! We are trying to continue and, at the same time, innovate, the prestigious Italian manufacturing tradition in this sector. I know what I want: I want to be a businessperson, and this degree has helped me believe in what I do.
