Very often we think that an entrepreneur simply must come up with a smashing business plan, and from there on, it is all downhill – even a lot of business schools are creating this kind of an impression. But is that really the entrepreneurial reality? NO!

In fact, the real challenges (but also the real fun of it) just get started when the business plan is written, and the company has been formally started. Now you are in the real world. Early stage management phase of a start-up is highly interesting and challenging – which is exactly, why the Munich Business Academy is focusing on this aspect of entrepreneurship. We will be looking at the necessary “management toolbox” to handle these challenges, you will get a chance to apply these tools in group work challenges and to discuss your ideas and questions with entrepreneurs, who have gone through this stage – and who are yet again faced with such topics over and over again.

Ready to roll up your sleeves and experience early-stage management beyond textbooks and prep-talks? Then get ready for your entrepreneurial experience at the Munich Business Academy.
