Study Trip to San Francisco - MSc in International Management

This two-week learning expedition has been designed to introduce the Master in International Management students to the Bay Area Innovation Ecosystem in a meaningful way that has allowed them to leverage this experience in their present/future managerial roles.

The common thread of this study trip was Design Thinking and its implications on human-centered business innovation.

The program included high -level lectures and workshops delivered by industry experts and visits to local tech companies, startups, and accelerators.

For instance they visited Berkeley University where they attended two presentations:

  • by Alic Chen, partner and co-founder of Citris Foundry, incubator of Berkeley;
  • by Gigi Wang, industry fellow and faculty at Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology at UC Berkeley on Successful innovation starts with mindset.

On INSEEC U Campus, Jerem Febvre, CEO and founder of Sublime, a leading tech solution for High-Impact non-intrusive digital advertising, shared his story with our students. He explained how a French Ad tech company which he started from scratch in Paris moved successfully to the US.

The Master in International Management also enjoyed a tour of the Silicon Valley. They visited Stanford campus, Facebook, Plug & Play, Blue Planet Ecosystem, and You Space.
