The World of Energy and Business provides great opportunities on a global scope. Sustainable production and green enterprise have become conditions for future growth in both the domestic and international markets. The question is: how do you grasp the opportunities for international growth, how do you decide what countries to expand to, and how do you go about setting up a factory abroad?
This minor combines international entrepreneurship with innovative technology. It includes fields as energy, sustainability, financial feasibility, marketing, international organizations, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and English business terminology.
The first part of the minor deals with preparation for international expansion. In a practical project aspects from the above fields are applied to determine the best possible country to which a technology based company can expand. In the second part the emphasis is on marketing, human resource management, organisational structures, cultural differences and finance. In a project a strategic paper is drafted about setting up a business abroad successfully. The ultimate question that needs to be answered is how the international expansion will be successful.
