Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


A study of challenges in anchoring of entrepreneurship at the Danish universities

This project investigates what significant challenges universities in Denmark are facing in regards to anchoring entrepreneurship as an integrated part of the university and meeting the requirements of political policy. The investigation will examine how the universities differentiation will affect the steering success depending on especially their social determination, sets of practices and positions.

The study is a multiple case study of the two Danish universities CBS and RUC, that differs in both a strategic sense, but also looking at their traditional manners, in order to show how structures and mechanism generates causal effects, resulting in a highly different positioning looking at the universities steering success.

The project considers how globalization has affected our market determination, and how this determination has influenced political policy and therefore, the political sense making in reforming the universities to meet the requirements in a highly competitive world economy.

The project examines crucial challenges the universities are facing from three parameters of steering success called “understand, can and will”. The first part of the paper is an investigation of how understanding the means of the entrepreneurship initiative differs looking at one university compared to another, and how this differentiation will reflect the university’s ability to implement and anchor entrepreneurship. The second part investigates how the results of a differentiation in “understand” and “can”, affect the political “will” through political instruments, and as a consequence the political will both include benefits and disadvantages looking at the specific universities.
