Concise presentation of the schedule

The “Entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial project management” University Diploma has two main components. The first is 80 hours of classes in the fundamental elements in entrepreneurship: identify opportunities and co-building using design thinking to propose innovative solutions, settle on an economic model, look for financing, take a creative approach, launch a business activity using bootstrapping, make a convincing case to stakeholders.

The second component is a real project management case on innovation about a subject raised by one of the university partner organisations, supported by a pedagogical framework and to learn intrapreneurial project management fundamentals. The multidisciplinary teams work for six months in order to design, test and present an innovative solution to the given challenge. This practical exercise allows students to develop skills to lead innovative projects, manage teams and multidisciplinary approaches.

Most of the class will be held online. At the beginning of the course and at the end, there will be a short phase of a few days that will take place on site at one of the partner universites.
