IMP³rove for Students

The special course IMP³rove for Students combines practical experience with the IMP³rove Assessment and academic education in innovation management.

With this special course, students gain experience in attracting companies to perform the IMP³rove Assessment on innovation management. They learn to interpret the information they receive from the companies during the workshops with management as well as from the detailed IMP³rove Benchmarking report. When developing the recommendations for the company and discussing them in class the students also develop experience in anticipating the constraints of companies.
