This course is project-based. Together with a selected Partner (Österreichischer Arbeitskreis für Corporate Governance), students will identify topics and trends of strategic importance to this partner and present them to its management.

In this part of the project, students will analyse both theoretical and practical literature and will give presentations on a range of different topics.

    Teaching/learning method(s)

    • Coaching sessions

    The course uses a problem-based learning approach. This implies that students will need to develop solutions to complex questions on an individual and/or group level. To support this process, a mix of instruments will be used: Input lectures will provide basic concepts for the next steps, coaching sessions will provide early feedback and presentations and reports will demonstrate the ability of students to successfully structure problems and provide meaningful answers. Practitioner input will give students guidance and feedback on their progress.
