Innovation and entrepreneurship study


About this course

Key aspects during this course are:

  • Interaction with a company: your goal is to tackle a company business challenge, make recommendation, and do your best to have an impact! This is neither an internship, nor a pre-recruitment.
  • Robust business analysis: you will develop your analytical skills on economic and social matters; you will learn more about how to handle a business analysis and make recommendations, using qualitative and/or quantitative research methods and reflecting upon the conditions for sound analysis.
  • Tech-based innovation: you will learn to employ analytical tools to assess the impact of a technology at a macro (industry, sector) or micro level (business, market).

The I&E Study course is organized group work, where students will work in teams of 4-5 students to prepare a group-report to address a business challenge based on a case offered by a company and the team-dynamics related to that process.
