The course is implemented together by Cphbusiness (Denmark), Estonian Business School and Haaga-Helia Porvoo Campus, with 20 students from each institution, working together in mixed teams. The travel, food and accommodation costs will be covered by the project, which is funded by Nordplus. The main theme of the course is business development.
The first week (week 45) the students are assigned to teams, given the development task by the local partner businesses and start the work online.
The second week (week 46) is an intensive camp at Estonian Business School in Tallinn. The teams will create ideas for improving the commissioner companies’ business, generally in the field of sales, marketing and service development.
The third week (week 47) is reserved for writing the final report, both for the partner businesses, as well as a more elaborate report including reflections on the process and learning of the team. The course ends with a review session
See above: the main weight of the course is on the camp (and the rest is on the pre and post weeks). There is no alternative way to complete the camp.
