Learning outcomes:
The course is specifically designed for students who anticipate the need for project management skills in their future career.
After successfully completing this part of the module, students will be familiar with the most important fundamentals of business administration and project management. This course is not intended as a pure project management course, but rather an introduction for engineering students to business issues to help them deal with standard tasks, optimization procedures and analysis methods. The course will also help students understand future project partners with a business background by for example, teaching them practical jargon.
On the basis of practical industrial development projects, students will acquire knowledge about costs, procurement and marketing/sales in particular. Complementary topics such as business administration and industrial development processes will expand students´ understanding of economic and corporate strategy perspectives and methods. Students will be able to understand product development plans and create large parts of them on their own.
