Overview

The course will cover various aspects relevant for project planning and/or the design and management of or e-ventures in the fields of media, IT, or telecommunication. Students develop a business idea and a concept for 'their' product and convincingly present it with a focus on the necessary business considerations ('how to make money?!').

There are two options for students projects:

a) Venture: Students set up a business plan for a new company. Important is the realistic representation of the profit potential ('How will you make money?'). Time periods and size of the company do not matter; we are NOT looking for prototypes etc.

b) Product innovation: Students set up a business plan for development and sales of a new product in a given company setting / product portfolio. Important is the realistic representation of the profit potential ('How will you make money?'). Time periods and size of the company do not matter, we are NOT looking for prototypes etc. The second option does require disclosing the company context.

Group formation: Group formation takes place in the first session by the professor. Registration details are shown below.
