As the majority of CEU students come from emerging markets or from transitory countries where the business culture and thus also the law for various avenues whereby a new business can be started by an individual entrepreneur or a few partners is underdeveloped. This being so irrespective that these business forms are the biggest potential employers and the motors of economic growth. These form the core of developed economies as well, however, the importance of SMEs if overshadowed by large business forms. For example, although franchise has become one of the most popular business forms in much of Central and Eastern Europe, the contract is only cursorily touched upon by some of the present courses. The same could be said also to private equity and venture capital. This course aims to remedy this.
