As part of the Erasmus+ project Cowork4EU, the course "International Coworking and Entrepreneurial Management" will take place in the summer term in the form of a block seminar. The seminar takes place in cooperation with partners from the Paris School of Business in France, the Prague University of Economics and Business in the Czech Republic and the Private University Schloss Seeburg in Austria.

During the course, students work in international teams with other students from the partner universities both digitally and physically. The master seminar includes a trip to one of the partner universities. Travel expenses are funded up to 507€ through the EU grant.

Students will learn about the concepts, dynamics and practices of coworking and coworking spaces.  Furthermore, students develop their knowledge in entrepreneurship, innovation management and creative thinking by working on case studies that simulate building their own startup. Intercultural working is promoted through collaboration in international teams.

The course takes place in hybrid form. In the summer semester of 2023, students will participate in a trip to the Prague University of Economics and Business in Prague to work with other international students. Only master's students are eligible for the seminar. Applications for the summer term 2023 are closed.
