Global Entrepreneurship programs at Questrom offer young entrepreneurs the opportunity to learn from world-renowned faculty and the groundbreaking research they conduct. Students go beyond the classroom, too, diving into Boston’s extraordinary ecosystem as interns and researchers. During their time here, they gain the practical tools and intellectual insights they need to launch their new venture ideas.
Since 2002, the Norway Entrepreneurship Program at BU has partnered with the University of Oslo’s School of Entrepreneurship, Gründerskolen, to offer a unique, cutting-edge learning experience for aspiring young entrepreneurs from Norway. Strongly supported by the Norwegian government, the program is guided by a bold vision to re-engineer entrepreneurship in Norway, positioning it as a center of excellence for technology and business innovation. The program brings together outstanding graduate students from across the country and across fields: engineering, computer science, nanotechnology, political science, industrial design, and finance.
Gründerskolen’s curriculum is complemented by a 12-week overseas academic component at BU Questrom. It combines classwork in entrepreneurial management with placement as a researcher in an incubator environment or an intern at a local startup. The results are striking: more than 400 students have completed the program since its inception, and many have gone on to found their own startups. They tell us that their time at Questrom was a pivotal and transformational experience.
Our Flexible Delivery
BU Questrom can combine several learning methods to provide an integrated and powerful learning experience. Programs can take place anywhere around the world—either in person or virtually. It’s all about what suits your students best.
On-campus at Boston University: A typical program takes place in our state-of-the-art facilities at the Questrom School of Business in the city of Boston. The educational experience is a mix of case discussion, lecture, simulation, role-play, group projects, and coaching.
Experiential learning: Boston University faculty and staff are deeply connected to transformational corporations and organizations in and around the city. University programs often include site visits to local companies and innovation centers as part of an immersive curriculum.
In-person at your location: Our programs can take place at a location of your choice. Delivery at the participants’ home campus provides continuity with other coursework and efficiency of time for student groups.
Online learning: BU can provide two types of e-learning experiences –on-demand or virtual live learning.
- To access proprietary content on-demand, BU Questrom has launched Questrom Digital. We can digitally deliver our leading curriculum to your students, and even bundle it with webinars, discussions, assessments, and more. We provide your students with self-paced solutions that can be delivered to both individuals and cohorts. Our learning platform can be customized, collaborative, and ready-to-go for learning as you like it.
- Faculty use “Zoom” technology to synchronously link with participants across the globe to teach in an environment closely resembling the classroom. Wall monitors allow the faculty to see participants and exchange with them. Faculty may use slides, the blackboard, and other tools as if the students were present in the class.
Blended learning: Universities may choose to combine online sessions (Questrom Digital self-paced courses or synchronously delivered sessions) with on-campus sessions in a complete program design. These custom designed programs augment face-to-face classroom sessions with online preparation or follow-up work and are well suited to international audiences.
Continuity and customization are at the center of the Questrom approach. Our programs can be tailored to run anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks. Programs can integrate workshop-driven content, theoretical frameworks, case-based discussions, real-life examples, site visits, and practical tools seamlessly into students’ current curriculum. Collaborate with our faculty to create an unparalleled global experience.
