Vienna Innovation Program
The Vienna Innovation ProgramWU will take place from May 13 until May 24, 2019 and builds on WU faculty’s expertise in this area. For two weeks a group of master students, both from WU’s international partner institutions as well as from WU, will jointly attend this intensive short program and work together on real life group projects.
This program, which was developed specifically for master students, who often cannot spend a full semester abroad, also includes social and cultural activities in and around Vienna with the aim of offering both a high quality academic and intercultural experience to the participants.
The academic program will be taught by a team of WU's Institute for Strategy, Technology and Organization, which is headed by Prof. Christopher Lettl. The program builds on a combination of lecture elements, case analyses, class discussions, exercises, and group work. Particular emphasis will be placed on practice-orientation and work in group projects.
The ViennaIP is a fantastic mix of theoretical and practical learning. On one hand we learned about innovation management from academic experts and on the other hand we worked on a real innovation project with a corporate partner. I have learned a lot and feel prepared to apply some of the concepts at work!
