Business Development & Entrepreneurship Division
While the Royal Institute of Technology has a long history of entrepreneurship and innovation management, it was not until the January 2011, that the Institute of Industrial Management created the division – Business Development and Entrepreneurship with Associate Professor Terrence E. Brown as its head.
The focus of the division is – Value creation through the creation and commercialization of innovation through existing enterprises and new ventures.
The division is engaged with teaching with the courses given among the school’s most popular. Additionally, the division is involved in two major research projects – one related to the means, methods and modes of research commercialization and the second, related to management, organizational and administrative innovations within Swedish industry.
The division has a long deep relationship to the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship, where KTH is one of the parent institutions.
With over 13,000 students and 1,600 postgraduate students, The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) is Sweden’s largest technological university. The Institute conducts education and research across a broad spectrum – from natural science to all branches of technology.
