You will leave our summer school having explored the latest technologies, and put yourself a step ahead with advice from industry-leading experts. We will show you how to put your ideas into successful strategies and avoid common innovation pitfalls.

The blended approach to theory, practice, strategy, and application offers a pragmatic view on the dynamic business environment.

During the summer school, you will learn from the best as participants will visit world-renowned companies such as Apple, Google, Intel, NetApp, Autodesk and more.

Throughout the program, you will be given faculty guidance whilst working in small teams to live the life of a startup.
