Content In the course “Project in Entrepreneurship / Innovation Management”, students will face theory-based and practical challenges within an explicit entrepreneurship and innovation context. Exemplary applications in the area of entrepreneurship can be specific topics, such as analyzing entrepreneurial concepts within specific industry settings or opportunity recognition. Applications in the area of technology and innovation management comprise the derivation of management implications for current challenges such as digitalization and corporate foresight. In order to overcome the projects’ challenges, the students should resort to established methods such as design thinking, sensitivity analyses, or scenario analyses. The tasks within the framework of the project are set either by the provision of dedicated technologies, or by challenges from explicit companies.
