Management Innovation Studies

The Summer School in Management Innovation Studies is a collaboration between the School for International Education and the Department of Management at Ca' Foscari, University of Venice that provides  students with the opportunity to gain important skills in the areas of Economics, Management and Innovation.

The Summer School will take a multidisciplinary approach by using different teaching methods to cover a variety of topics. Each topic will be introduced within its theoretical framework of reference, moving into its extension and diffusion with application possibilities. Related research projects and their empirical implication will also be investigated and each topic will end with a final discussion.

A final workshop in which students discuss a specific topic will be held at the end of the course.All teaching and discussion will be in English.
