He teaches "Corporate Entrepreneurship", also known as Intrapreneurship, at NORDAKADEMIE. The module is about launching new initiatives within existing corporations. These “new initiatives” can be anything from minor process changes to spinning-off entire business units. The course is structured into 3 main segments:

1. Entrepreneurship Introduction & Overview
2. The Nature of Corporate Entrepreneurship
3. Creating the entrepreneurial organization

In the 1st part students will deal with the nature of Entrepreneurship. Without having a clear under-standing of what e-ship is and what entrepreneurs do and react to, they cannot create the entrepreneurial organization
In the 2nd part the concept of Corporate Entrepreneurship (CE) from both a theoretical a practical (case analysis) point of view will be introduced. Students will talk about how companies can organize themselves better to encourage CE in their organizations. There will be 4 cases to discuss.
In the 3rd part, the course will go more into detail with the (organizational and human) drivers of Internalentrepreneurship.
