I&E Study

You will work on an online assignment for around 1.5 ects, before the project work

    • One group session to introduce and detail the assignment,
    • 1-to-many workshops to help students follow the steps in the assignment structure.

You will work on a group project work for around 4.5 ects

The project work addresses a ‘business challenge’ from a case provider or Summer School project continuation, it is generally not connected to Master Thesis or internship,

The project work is based on applying the same ‘robust business analysis methodology’ in 4 steps as in former I&E Study course; its outcome is a professional writing, not a scientific paper

          • Step 1: Identification of the study topic and problem to tackle
          • Step 2: Selection of applicable concepts through literature review (and why?)
          • Step 3: Observations on a selected part of the case (data collection),
          • Step 4: Analysis and interpretation.
    • One individual or group session to introduce and detail the assignment and help students identify the challenges/questions,
    • 1-to-many workshops: one for each of the 4 study steps above. Students support can be structured through pre-/post assignments for each workshop,
    • An oral defence.
