EMBA Class of 2018 Takes Advantage of Elective Module “Business Development & Innovation Management”
Our Class of 2018 was the first ever EMBA group to take advantage of the latest addition to our curriculum: This summer semester marked the introduction of four elective modules in support of our regular course offering. Every participant is free to choose two of these electives.
From 14 – 18 July, the elective module “Business Development & Innovation Management” covered leadership of development processes in organizations while taking into account factors such as innovation, technological advancement, and resulting entrepreneurial growth.
Introducing the module, Prof. Dr. Hanna Hottenrott highlighted the business aspects of technological changes and the business design method. Prof. Dr. Nicola Breugst explored the subject of entrepreneurial behavior and team leadership from the perspective of modern-day business leaders.
A holistic perspective on the role of intellectual property for the growth of small and large enterprises was provided by Christoph Ann, Chair of Corporate and Intellectual Property Law. Participants also benefitted from real life cases from current international patenting law, presented by Dr. Tobias Wuttke, Managing Partner and Head of Litigation at Meissner Bolte law firm.
Additional highlights of the well-attended elective module included lectures by Prof. Dr. Hana Milanov and Prof. Dr. Benjamin Jeschke on entrepreneurial growth. Completing the successful module, participants visited the Bavarian Parliament and attended an all-day focus session on Business Design, in which Dr. Sven Asmus and Dr. Nils Jener covered all stages in the development of start-up companies.
For several participants, this already marked the final module after one-and-a-half years of executive education at the TUM School of Management. As the next step, participants will be working on their master’s thesis as the final requirement for their EMBA certification next year. We would like to wish all our participants the best of luck on their way towards graduation.
