Program Description:

The study of entrepreneurship and innovation is put is set in the context of other more generic problems concerning the runnling, the management and organization of the enterprise. An integrated, multidisciplinary and intercultural perspective is suggested.The Economcs of Innovation, Innovation Management, Development of new products, Entrepreneurial Finance, Bank contract law, Intellectual Property Law, Tools for market Forecasting, Entrepreneurship for the Third Sector, Innovation of services, Management of the productivity chain are some of the lectures and contents which distinguish this study course. The contents of the lectures and the didactic approach exemplify multidisciplinary integration and the intercultural dimension. The topics of entrepreneurship and innovation are approached from different study perspectives, in order to accustom the students to analyzing entrepreneurial situations in their complexity and considering the opportunities and consequences of decisions from different points of view. This choice seems particularly appropriate for decisions characterized by uncertainty. A qualifying element of this educational path is represented by the “Entrepreneurial Laboratory”, which is a formative context in which the course contents belonging to heterogeneous disciplinary fields are linked in a systematic way, applying didactic learning methods based on problems. In the laboratory the progressively acquired skills are utilized by the students in order to analyze real situations. The intercultural vision of this study course is primarily composed of three elements: in the constant referring to the cultural dimension that characterizes the behavior of economic actors operating in a European or International context, in the admission criteria that make this course accessible to students coming from heterogeneous places, with heterogeneous training and background as well as in the trilingual model. The objective of the acquisition of the three languages (Italian, German, English) is obtained through cultural initiatives (for example: seminars and conferences, exhibits, involvement of members of the civil society) proposed to students by the university in the three teaching languages and with all forming activities of the study course (lectures, presentations, articles, exercitations, examinations) taking place in the three official languages. This model gives students the opportunity to learn languages by using them. Furthermore students have the opportunity to use the services of the Language Centre in order to acquire the necessary language skills or to improve their own level of knowledge. During their studies students have to perform an internship which is considered a fundamental mandatory training activity in order to develop the capacity to use the knowledge acquired during their studies in order to afford a problem in a specific productive context. Finally there is the final dissertation for which 15 CPs are assigned. The production of a paper of advanced level with an original content is required. For the preparation of the dissertation the student re-evaluates the acquired skills in order to be able to classify, deepen and analyze a topic or a case in a critical and autonomous way.
