ABOUT EBI

To create, lead, and connect in the age of uncertainty - we live in a VUCA world. Volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. Organizations and individuals alike face the “new normal” where the only constant is change. By fostering entrepreneurial mindsets and business innovation we equip the new generations with competence and grit to thrive under the conditions of uncertainty and crisis. By applying the entrepreneurial logic to developing and running organizations, we help our future graduates to redefine the meaning of VUCA by turning volatility into vision, uncertainty into understanding, complexity into clarity, and ambiguity into agility.

Students will take a deep dive into entrepreneurial knowledge, develop highly transferable skills, and foster entrepreneurial mindsets that will allow them to become the agents of change. Upon graduation, students will be able to confidently leverage uncertainties in creating their own businesses, in leading innovation and change in well-established organizations they choose to work for, or in connecting various functional areas of business to generate strong synergies.
