2 SWS, 6 CP

Fridays, 12:30 noon - 5:30 pm, Dates: see below

Location: HS XXIII (WiSo-Building)

Start: Apr. 20, '18

Held in English (some knowledge of German is advantageous, but not required)

Mandatory Pre-Assignment - see below


Course tasks will be assigned during the first session. There are two options:

Option 1: Students join the MTM Entrepreneurship / Project course with all its details (if they have not yet taken that course and prefer to get 'seminar credits');

Option 2: Students develop a 'project and business case' for an MTM innovation to be offered/used by a large MTM player in Cologne, such as the WDR, NetCologne, UnityMedia, or DFL Digital Sports. Option 2 will focus on providing a detailed and realistic analysis of a business / cost saving potential under given regulatory and contractual constraints. Projects will be suggested in the first session - choices will depend on the number of registered students.

On July 6, '18, students will present their course results in the 'Foyer des Hörsaalgebäudes' to the public.


Group formation will be organized on April 13 by the professor. Students preferences will be taken into account. Registration details are shown below
