HEC-TUM Summer Program



When & Where?

July 3 – 14, 2023 : At the TUM School of Management campus in Heilbronn, Germany. 


Digital innovation is disrupting our way of life, our social relations, and the economy at an ever-increasing pace. It is now at the heart of the dynamics of business creation and industry transformation. The "Entrepreneurship and Digital Innovation" Summer School is designed for participants who have:

  • A curiosity for new business models;
  • An aspiration to work in a group to imagine the value proposition of a digital project;
  • The desire to experiment and challenge themselves.

The objective of this 2-week program is to immerse participants in two essential dimensions of digital innovation: start-up entrepreneurship and industrial transformation.

Digital tools are transforming the way a business project is developed. The phases of understanding the market, identifying user problems, ideation, testing a new offer, iteration and launch have been profoundly modified thanks to the new creation methods and digital tools now available.

During the first week with HEC Paris, participants will discover the fundamentals of digital entrepreneurship, ranging from the skills needed, methods applied, and tools used, to move from an idea to a startup project. The dynamic learning approach includes a learning-by-doing pedagogy with a conceptual contribution, thanks to class sessions with inspiring examples shared through testimonies and team workshops.

During the second week with the TUM (Technische Universität München), we will introduce and discuss cases and examples of digital transformation and technological innovation to industries such as healthcare or retail. Participants will work in groups to find solutions to challenges in digital transformation proposed by business managers.
