In this I&E Study project course students get the ability to apply, synthesize, and evaluate their prior I&E learning and acquire new knowledge and skills within a real business case by (1) identifying and assessing the impact of a technology in certain industry, market and/or organization, and by (2) conducting a business analysis / research study, e.g. by analyzing the market and business environment and developing dimensions of the business model in relation with the business case.
The course is based on a group assignment to address an innovation or entrepreneurial case grounded in real life. A large autonomy is given to the students to organize and achieve their goals. Students will work in teams of around 4-5 students, but each student will also have an individual responsibility of certain part of the study project.
