Academical year kick-off - BootCamp
Our master level students start their academic year with a kick-off - BootCamp. It's an intensive opening course that takes place in a beautiful natural environment in West Estonia, in Roosta Holiday Village and its aim is to supply an in-depth introduction into the structure and outcome(s) of every study programme, and advice on how to plan time during the studies. Of course, the aspect of socializing was of importance as well and aimed to facilitate collaboration and synergy between people with different competencies and ideas at an early stage.
„We started with the Boot Camp format in 2014 when we opened an MBA programme of Business Innovation. The feedback of students and experience of organisers revealed that it was a very motivating and effective way to bring the students up-to-date to the programme and make personal contacts. We believe that it will become a long term tradition of EBS,“ says the Vice Rector for International Collaboration of EBS Toomas Danneberg.
The academic year 2017/2018 will start with the BootCamp on September 15-16 at Roosta Holiday Villages.
BootCamp 2016 took place from September 16 - 17 and the keynote speaker was Professor Alistair Fee with “Enhancing Innovation and Creativity in Business Thinking”. He is an international trade specialist with experience in over 50 countries. He runs innovation and marketing workshops that help companies, students and inventors to become more innovative, creative and market driven. He is also a visiting Professor at the European Business School in Oestrich-Winkel and at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
