All students will spend their first academic year (semester 1 and 2) at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) before they move on to their second-year destination.


Semesters 1 and 2 TUHH provide a strong foundation in the field of Technology and Innovation Management. They look at early and late phases of the innovation management process. They concentrate on market research for (radical) innovation, cross functional cooperation at the front end of the innovation process, managing innovation projects over geographical and functional/divisional boarders and preparing the market introduction of new products and services. In addition, they provide a foundation in the field of Entrepreneurship.

The course content of semester 3 depends on which partner institution is chosen. Based on their specific core competencies each partner offers courses which complement / deepen the study program of the first year (see table above).
