As part of the Erasmus+ project Cowork4EU, the course "International Coworking and Entrepreneurial Management" will take place in the winter 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.

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.

In the winter term 2024/2025, the students from our partner universities in France, Czechia and Austria will come to Dortmund! Only master's students are eligible for the seminar. During the seminar, participants must take part in short surveys that take place during the seminar and actively participate in the group work. The application period for the winter term 2024/2025 runs from June 15 to July 7, 2024. Interested in applying for the seminar? Follow the link below:
