In the spring semester 2017, the ICT Chair gave the practical lecture Strategic Project Management. 32 students at Master level learned well-founded theoretical aspects of the project management on the one hand, and the experiences and applications of our partners from their experience in daily project management. The aim of the lecture is to provide the students with the best possible preparation for the challenges of future project managers. The lecture was repeatedly conducted with our partners from Campana & Schott, revendex and Augsburger Deutsch & Partner.
Finn de Thomas Wagner works since April 2017 as a trainee at the iimt, however he has already been involved in an iimt project since September 2016. At the iimt, Finn will continue developing the market potential analysis for the Swiss project of the Solar Decathlon competition. Here, a team with members from four Swiss universities has developed the NeighborHub - a fully solar powered house which will be taken to Denver in October 2017 and compete in various disciplines with 12 other collegiate teams.
The 23rd of March, the successful iimt Masterclass with our top speaker, Prof. Dr. Guido Palazzo, took place. With the topic “From Volkswagen to Wells Fargo – Understanding the recent wave of corporate scandals”, more than 45 participants followed the iimt’s invitation and participated in this event.
Prof. Dr. Guido Palazzo demonstrated in several practical examples that, against our intuition, bad things are more often done by good people who are embedded in high-pressure cultures than by a few criminal employees who break the rules. The presentation was followed by a lively discussion and a networking aperitif.
The iimt is looking forward to welcoming you at our next iimt Masterclass.
