Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

The second integrated term project is an analysis of the participant’s own organization/company departing from the courses taught in the second term. The analysis is supposed to bridge the perspectives in the courses, and will as such have the industry and stakeholders (particularly customers) as the focal object of analysis. It is the application of models, theories and frameworks on the participant’s own practice that is the major purpose – and linked to this analysis, the expected outcome is an identification of a number of potential strategic issues.
