Your own business

Do you dream of starting your own business? And do you perhaps already have a unique business concept? Take up the challenge and start your own business as early as during your studies. We will help you do just that!

Ambitions and dreams...

At BUas we attach great importance to entrepreneurship. Many students decide to go into business during or after their studies. Did you know that about 16% of all BUas students have the ambition to start a business of their own? And that more than 280 students are currently already running their own business alongside their studies?

... become reality

We would love to support those ambitions and dreams at BUas. We do so in two ways;  

  1. Entrepreneurship is woven into the content of all BUas degree programmes. You will be trained as an entrepreneurial professional. There are specific courses on the theme of entrepreneurship for each programme, and from year 2 you can choose to take part in an Excellence track. We also offer a fourth-year BUas-wide minor in Entrepreneurship. Additionally, nearly all degree programmes have possibilities for graduation through your own business.  
  2. Make use of BUas Startup Support if you want to start a business alongside your studies. Do you just have an idea for a business but have doubts about what to do next, or is your business already generating revenue? For all stages of entrepreneurship, we offer support based on the BUas Startup Support initiative. For instance, we organise events on various themes, we have coaches available for you, we have access to finance funds, and we bring you into contact with other entrepreneurial students. We work closely together with regional platforms such as Braventure so that we can help you set up your business or make it grow.
