Entrepreneurship and Existentialism - MGSM881

This unit is subject to a quota. Limited places are available. Please refer to the Faculty for further information

“Many of the practices and institutions we inherited from earlier phases of the Industrial Revolution are ill-suited to the world of work which is now taking shape. A new, entrepreneurial approach to preparing for working life is needed.” Flores

This new "entrepreneurial approach" to work and life preparation can be found in what shall be called "existential education." Existential education is grounded in the context of "creative disruption". A conceptual overview of the relationship between existentialism and entrepreneurship will be developed, the relationship between existentialists and entrepreneurs will be examined and the competencies and learning outcomes will be set out. This will enable students to open up new possibilities for their thinking, their organisations and their careers, by leveraging uncertainty and ambiguity to create new, unimagined futures, as entrepreneurs characteristically do.
