International Technology Management Research Seminar
Technology management is a dynamic and vibrant research field with a highly interdisciplinary nature – and vast job opportunities domestically and abroad. In this course, we focus on recent trends in an international context. Key concepts are discussed and applied via course assignments. The objective is to deepen the understanding of state-of-the-art technology management approaches for the successful development and commercialization of new products, services, and processes in various industries. Participating groups will work interdisciplinary.
In the upcoming summer term 2022, the key parts of this master course will take place during a block seminar in June (20-23 June).
This semester, the topic of our ITMRS seminar is on technology entrepreneurship in international start-up hubs. Technology driven start-ups are seen as vital drivers to fuel the digital transformation and prepare societies for the upcoming challenges ahead.
In this context, we will be looking especially at technology start-ups in the USA, as we will welcome an external guest lecturer from New York. He is the Corporate Controller of the largest psychology-based digital health platform, headquartered in New York, NY, a global healthtech unicorn with over 5,000 employees.
During this seminar, we will introduce the US start-up ecosystem, analyze potential differences between east-coast and west-coast start-ups and present real-world challenges that start-ups face – and participants of this ITMRS seminar will solve. As the seminar develops, we might extend the analysis to other international start-up hubs like Tel Aviv and Berlin.
Methodologically, we will concentrate on a case study approach and participants will identify and analyze technological challenges for start-ups and present their findings within the seminar paper.
This course takes place annually in the winter and summer semester. The course is in English.
