Seminar (WS/SS)

Content of the seminar Technology, Innovation and Start-up Management

Within the scope of the Master seminar, the students are expected to learn how to perform a systematic literature overview of a research field in technology, innovation and start-up management – an important prerequisite for a successful Master thesis.

Key aspects of the work are the identification of relevant sources, the systematization of the literature, the elaboration of key findings, a clear and simple language in presenting the results and the identification of interesting research gaps. The paper may serves as a basis for the Master thesis at the department.

The seminar is divided into two parts:

  • A paper and
  • An presentation.

Each student is required to write an independent scientific paper and to hold a corresponding presentation about the respective topic.

A tutor will support the students until the completion of the scientific paper and the final presentation. The final presentations are introduced to the department team as well as the other course members, which are expected to participate in the Q & A.

Student feedback

  • "Inspired good food for thought."
  • "Responded quickly and helpfully to questions."
