The module consists of two lecture series, each of which include two sessions held by guest speakers to refer to state of the art examples of marketing and innovation. Students will be asked to read the literature before the lecture and prepare for each lecture using texts and slides that are provided. Students will be enabled to relate the material to decision making in practice, by means of examples and cases. In a group project, students can elect to apply key innovation concepts and develop their own case examples, which will subsequently be shared in a wiki format. Students will also be encouraged to discuss the material in online forums that are provided to the students between lectures.
