Description

The Capstone cases course is intended to integrate the previous courses and allow students to deepen and apply their insights in a ‘Living Case’. For this we will work closely with a relevant company. In a series of visits with company presentations and interview sessions, student teams will analyse real multi-faceted business issues in which ICT plays a central role. Based on their findings and supplementary research they will then present their results to the company’s management.

Course objectives

Deepen and apply students’ insights in ICT related issues in “real life” situations.

Timetable
