The core premise of this programme is that students develop their own idea throughout their studies. If students have not a specific idea, professors and/or College’s academic services support them in generating one at the beginning of the programme. Ideas are usually driven by a business start-up plan, but other types of ideas are equally valuable.

Throughout the programme students develop their idea as they work through the core module (Creativity to Insight to Action), using material learned from other modules. This ensures that studies will be highly relevant and tailored to the student as an individual. It is worth mentioning that students may refine or even totally change their idea during the programme which is a proof of their personal and cognitive evolution- so it should be considered a good thing.

The first semester focuses on Ideation, providing the opportunity to develop and refine an idea. The focus of the second semester is the Effectuation element, offering the appropriate tools and know-how to put an idea into practice. The aim of the Capstone Project, during the third semester, is to allow you to develop an idea even further. Where possible, assessments (which are aimed to be innovative and varied in format) are designed to mobilize the student continue developing the idea, as well as to ensure that programme is fully relevant for you and planned next steps.
