I liked the MITIM (M.Sc. in economics and business administration) programme for many reasons. First of all, the courses were taught by professors from two universities. This fact brought a wide perspective into the subjects. During the studies, I made interesting personal connections. Also the requirement to complete a traineeship as a part of the programme was an outstanding feature. It boosted the practical relevance of the studies.
During one course, we had to find a promising technological innovation and make a short, but persuasive presentation of it, aimed at attracting potential venture capitalists to invest in the project. My team was able to provide convincing arguments and present them with inspiration and confidence and, ultimately, win the competition which was a part of the course. This experience played a significant role in helping me understand that skills in selling a great idea are often as important as the idea itself!
I am currently working in the field of technology and innovation management. The key area of my responsibilities is to develop and ensure the successful rollout of new technical solutions for improving the business processes throughout the company globally. I think that the MITIM programme successfully combines the practical and theoretical sides of business!
