Course Level

This course will take you to Milano in Italy, and  can only be booked in combination with the course Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Europe: Business Models and Financing Models (B27). 

During this week in Italy you will explore Innovation from the point of view of the Branding and the Customer Experience. To reach this aim we will use the great opportunities given by the Italian lifestyle in the most innovative, very international and, at the same time, typical Italian city of Milan. 

This week in Italy you will focus on new business models and high-end industry in (fashion and life-style) design and branding

During the pre-course (B27) you will pay attention to business models and financing models and the complete supply chain from the perspective of innovation and entrepreneurship in European Business. While these first two weeks the focus will be on production, logistics and inbound aspects, the Italian add-on will focus on the market-proposition, and will so 'close' the exploration of  business modelling.

The programme entails: lectures, workshops, excursions, experiential visits and groupwork.

If you decide to do all the three 3 weeks of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in European Business, you will have a complete overview and learning experiences about ideation, development, production and go to the market strategy.
