Shift entrepreneurship and business is part of UiA Shift entrepreneurship (heronafter Shift). Shift emphasizes the development of scalable and impactful entrepreneurial ventures. Shift provides its students with the infrastructure needed to successfully plan and launch a business, while contributing expertise in a wide range of fields and access to an extensive network in Norway and abroad. The master program is built on a combination of academic excellence and practical experience, allowing students to learn, practice, and conduct entrepreneurship under the guidance of research-active academics and mentors (i.e. experienced entrepreneurs and/or managers).
Shift has one clear vision: to educate students in order to become impactful entrepreneurs able to build scalable start-ups in a global environment and change existing organizations for the better. The purpose can be divided in three:
Shift consists of three complementary programs. The entrepreneurship courses are taken jointly by students from Shift entrepreneurship and innovation, Shift entrepreneurship and business and Shift entrepreneurship and technology, enabling a cross-disciplinary approach that unites students from various backgrounds.
The program consists of entrepreneurship courses, specialization courses, and 30 ECTS master thesis. The entrepreneurship courses cover various aspect of the entrepreneurship process. The first semester is focused on testing ideas and developing concepts. In the second semester, students start the process of developing ideas and concepts into businesses. In the third semester, students keep working on their businesses while simulataneously building their knowledge through the specialization courses. The specialization courses depend on each student’s chosen profile. Choice of profile is based on the student’s bachelor degree (see below). Finally, in the specialization project (which is a preparation course for the master thesis) and in the master thesis, students are able to research an issue relevant for both their academic output and their business development.
The specialization profiles for Shift entrepreneurship and business include courses from the master program in Business Administration. In order for the program to lead to the “Siviløkonom” qualification, the course plan is developed in line with UHR’s requirements for the use of this title (i.e. Vilkår for bruk av tilleggsbetegnelsen (sidetittelen) siviløkonom).
The programme has two specializations:
Note! The specialization courses may be subject to change.
The key learning outcome from the Shift program is an entrepreneurial mindset achieved through theoretical knowledge about the field of entrepreneurship and practical skills from experimenting with the start-up process. Students graduate with general competency within entrepreneurship that is valuable when starting new ventures, commercialization processes, change and innovation processes in established firms, as well as support for other start-ups in the establishment phase. The students will also have knowledge, skills and general competence in accordance with the chosen specialization courses (i.e. business controlling or international business).
On successful completion of the program, the candidates should have the following learning outcomes:

The program provides a variety of teaching and working methods. Interactive lecturing is used where appropriate, but the program emphasizes flipped classroom and blended learning.
Due to the importance of the team in entrepreneurship, the program encourages group projects and teamwork wherever it is appropriate (e.g. group projects, specialization project, etc.), while also ensuring that the students deliver some work independently (e.g. term papers and master thesis).
Students learn how to write academic papers, present their work, use various tools related to entrepreneurship in practice, and work together with external actors (e.g. start-ups, established businesses, etc.).
Students are given feedback on their performance, while also being trained in providing feedback for each other.
The program is internationally oriented with international students and faculty. The content is based on international research and focus on both local and global issues. Students will have the opportunity to communicate with as well as visit international faculty and firms. Most – if not all – courses will be taught in English.
During the summer the students are invited to participate in a short exchange programme that will include an intensive course, and the opportunity to experience the local ecosystem hands-on. In the beginning we are aiming to bring the students to Tel Aviv, and thereby take advantage of the already established agreement between the School of Business and Law at UiA and College of Management (COMAS) in Israel. Other possible destinations include San Francisco, Austin, and Boston, all of which provide examples of rich entrepreneurial eco-systems.
