Campana & Schott - Lecture on PPM

Our partner Campana & Schott offered our students a lecture based on Project Portfolio Management (PPM). The students learned first-hand, how to successfully implement the main fields of action of PPM, portfolio governance and resource management, portfolio structuring as well as portfolio sustainability.

The students could directly apply what they learned within a Case Study. We would like to thank Christian Schmid & Sebastian Lipp for they valuable contribution and are looking forward to welcoming them next year.

Mark Brandl back again

Mark Brandl, Innovation Manager at SBB, held again a keynote speech at the iimt. In his last year’s speech, he presented in a lively way the daily challenges SBB is facing. This year he shared his insights about Niche- and Innovation Management with students of the University of Fribourg in the course “Digital (R)evolution”. Innovative projects and ideas from a technological as well as from a customer perspective are lying ahead and SBB is certainly taking over a leading role in the mobility sector.

We would like to thank Mark Brandl for his valuable contribution and are looking forward to welcoming him next year.
