New journey, new visions, new class!
Being the 10th intake of this EMBA program, 38 innovative personalities got together on Tuesday morning, when their entrepreneurial journey began right away:
To get a first idea about their new class and team mates, the students were asked to introduce themselves with an item they regarded as an innovation.
From the peel of a banana as a perfect natural packaging, over a Swiss Knife which combines ordinary gadgets in a new way, to intelligent wearables as assistance in day-to-day-life – the innovative ideas showed diversity in many directions.
And so does the new class!
Four continents and fourteen nationalities are represented in this year´s EMBA class. But not only does the geographical range promise interesting insights from many perspectives. Also the professional backgrounds of the students provide huge potentials for the development and execution of great ideas: engineers, product and innovation managers, consultants, founders, industrial designers, computer scientists, marketing and HR experts and many more enrich the portfolio of the class.
And this is great news for the students, as having diversified teams is especially useful for promoting innovation and exploring new opportunities – an insight that Prof. Hana Milanov, Academic Director of the program, emphasized on in her welcome speech.
New opportunities are there to be discovered by our students. In a first Business Simulation Game the class could get a feeling of what it means to setup a business from scratch – including the formation of a team, setting essential KPIs and finding ways of how to achieve them.
This challenge was a great chance for the students to absorb as much input as they can – and that will definitely help them once the Team Project starts.
Many challenges, many opportunities and loads of good vibes – welcome new class!
