Business Venture Project
A VITAL ELEMENT OF THE EPFL EMBA IS LEARNING TO ADDRESS ALL NECESSARY STRATEGIC AND OPERATIONAL ACTIVITIES THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A BUSINESS PLAN.
It requires participants to produce a realistic and detailed multi-year action plan that identifies risks and addresses how to mitigate them. Working in teams allows participants to experience issues related to leadership, collaboration, motivation, and personal differences, and encourages groups to solve these issues to ensure the optimal outcome.
Strategic & Innovative Project
THE HIGHLY PRACTICAL STRATEGIC AND INNOVATIVE PROJECT (SIP) IS AN APPLICATION-IN-CONTEXT OF KNOWLEDGE GENERATED OVER THE COURSE OF THE EPFL EMBA PROGRAM.
This individual thesis work is usually conducted at and for the company where each participant is employed. The SIP can be an analysis of a new process, product or service, or the evaluation of transitioning an existing product or service into a new market. Alternatively, the SIP can be a detailed analysis of an existing business or planned strategy to project future performance that offers enhanced or alternative solutions. Most importantly, the SIP is intended to have practical relevance to the participant’s firm.
International Capstone Project
A HIGHLIGHT OF THE EPFL EMBA PROGRAM IS THE INTERNATIONAL CAPSTONE PROJECT IN CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA.
It is an opportunity for participants to combine and apply all the learnings of this executive program in a practical setting while understanding how diverse cultural influences impact businesses. A key benefit is that participants learn that there are business opportunities in alternative markets.
Participants work in small teams, each with a young, dynamic company or organization in the Cape Town area, to help solve a current business challenge facing the company.
