Space for Business Programme: Registrations until 31 january

Do you want to join the ranks of top space professionals and entrepreneurs from around the world? The Space for Business programme gives you the chance to learn about the business opportunities in the emerging space economy and take your career to new heights.

The New Space economy is growing rapidly. More and more entrepreneurs see the space sector as a new opportunity. Companies from different non-space sectors are integrating space technologies in their business models. The next generation of space technology will be responsible for delivering global internet, fighting climate change, and taking humanity to the Moon and Mars. To accomplish these goals, the New Space industry is looking for talent with business skills and entrepreneurial mindsets.

To meet the growing demand for specialized space business education, three top-ranked European business schools, University of St Gallen (HSG) from Switzerland, Nova School of Business and Economics (Nova SBE) from Portugal, and Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) from the Netherlands, have joined forces to launch the first international space business programme. They do this in collaboration with ESA, the European Space Agency.

The Space for Business programme is designed for professionals, policymakers and entrepreneurs who want to invest in themselves and learn how they and their organizations can benefit from the opportunities offered by the New Space economy.

The programme aims to attract individuals who are passionate about the space industry as a whole and those who are enthusiastic about furthering and/or exploring their knowledge/interests within this field. Previous participants have had experience as policy makers, investors, and space/tech innovators/entrepreneurs.

The six-month programme consists of three in-class modules in three different European countries. Each module takes on average 50-60 hours to complete (including the time you spend in-class). The first module takes five days in Switzerland, the second module four days in Portugal, and the third module three days. After the third module, the programme is directly followed by a two-day immersion, the ESA Touchdown, in the ESA ecosystem at the European Space Technology and Research Centre. The third module and ESA Touchdown are combined in one five-day visit to the Netherlands, which also marks the graduation of the programme.

During the programme you will work on a personal impact project, which challenges you to directly apply your learnings and make real and relevant impact on your business and role. For your impact project you will be supported by academics and industry experts.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to advance your career and make a real impact in the New Space Economy. The program starts on March 13, 2023 with the first module at the University of St. Gallen. The final registration deadline is January 31, 2023. If you are interested in registering, please visit the Space for Business programme website
