Students are given the opportunity to improve their professional skills by working in small teams on real business cases submitted and supervised by partner companies from the region.
First step of the program is a series of seminars on project management and teamwork techniques. In a second phase, small groups of students work during six to eight weeks on real business projects submitted by partner companies. Finally, the results are presented to business and university representatives.
