At Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship (CSE) and the Center for Intellectual Property studies (CIP), three 60-credit engineering masters programs (for civilingenjör) are given that are also eligible for a Teknologie Magister (also translated into a Master of Science) in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The programs focus on Venture Creation (Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship), Intellectual Capital Management (ICM) and Bioscience Business Creation (GIBBS). The advanced action- and role-play based pedagogy in these programs, limits student admission. Therefore these programs have special application and recruitment processes.

VENTURE CREATION PROGRAM

The Venture Creation program is Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship s (CSE) 60-credit program provided since 2000. New features, starting from the fall 2004, are:

  • New courses in English during the first semester, based upon role-play simulations, also including students admitted to the ICM-program (see ICM below)
  • New courses during the second and third semesters that put greater emphasis on the inter-disciplinary and action-based pedagogy.

The basic pedagogic approach at CSE which emphasizes real-life innovation projects, teamwork, technology-based entrepreneurship and interplay with Chalmers innovation system, is reinforced in this new version. Applicants to the Venture Creation program are expected, as before, to have high motivation and commitment towards development of an innovation project into a start-up, including interaction with idea providers, course mates and experts within the innovation system. You do not need to provide a new business idea, but are required to have a strong will, ambition and a driving-force. You will attend the program with students from different backgrounds in technology, business, law and design. This diversity provides an environment with great opportunities for students to learn from one another. The course structure and individual learning-plan allows you to obtain the basics of start-up management while also specializing in you areas of strength, such as a certain technological field.

The first of the three semesters consists of three courses:

  • Design of Technological Innovations and Markets, CIP010 (5cr)
  • Intellectual Property Strategies, CIP055 (5cr)
  • Technology-based Entrepreneurship, CIP015 (10cr)

During the second and third semesters (spring and fall of the second year), four courses interplay in a unique way with the innovation project and the masters thesis, allowing for sophisticated action-based learning to occur. The four courses during this project year are:

  • New Venture Creation and Formation, CIP035 (5cr)
  • Valuation and Entrepreneurial Finance, CIP040 (5cr)
  • Marketing a Knowledge-based Business, CIP080 (5cr)
  • Entrepreneurial Leadership in Dynamic Organizations, CIP045+CIP050 (2,5+2,5cr)

The master thesis EINX01 (20cr) builds upon the innovation project, and is therefore carried out during the second and third semesters. The thesis normally comprises the following highly interlinked modules where individuals in the group to some extent can specialize on an area of strength:

  • a business plan
  • a market study
  • a technical study and development

The innovation projects stem from research at Chalmers, from other universities, or from small or large firms. The intellectual property of the project is contractually secured by the School of Entrepreneurship, prior to the project start. The innovation projects are often early patented or patentable ideas that need the complementary entrepreneurial driving force to reach the market. The aim is to start a new venture, based upon the ideas created during the project year. Historically, many students continue with their venture as co-owners and employees after finalization of the program.

The last day for application is April 15th 2005. Further information and special application forms are available on our homepage at www.entrepreneur.chalmers.se or emailing to ''info@entrepreneur.chalmers.se''. Applicants are required to have 100 points at the time of application and 120 points when the program begins at the fall.

ICM PROGRAM

Over the past twenty years or so, the global economy has been undergoing an evolutionary shift, from an industrial-based economy to a knowledge-based economy. The realization among corporations that the majority of their assets are intangible in nature has created a paradigm shift in the economy, to what can be called Intellectual Capitalism. Fuelled by advances in information technology and the increased strategic importance of intellectual property, this New Economy is here to stay. Corporations must now learn to effectively manage their intellectual capital in order to remain competitive.

The identification of intellectual capital as a strategic corporate asset is only the first step. In order to effectively manage IC, interdisciplinary knowledge is required thus necessitating the convergence of technical, managerial, economic, financial, and legal expertise. Traditionally, these disciplines have been taught separately with crossovers as the exception instead of the rule. Although the need for specialists will always be important, the generalist possessing a clear view of the big picture is demanded in today s corporate and economic environment. ICM allows us to see the forest through the trees.

The Intellectual Capital Management program (ICM) is a 60 point (including thesis) masters program, in which interdisciplinary studies bring together engineering, business and law students to create networks and positive synergies. The program encourages both teamwork and joint learning to help specialists from different fields better communicate with each other. The ICM Masters Program integrates traditional theoretical subject fields with vocational training and business simulation, using an innovative "role-play" pedagogy.

The purpose of the ICM Masters Program is to develop the engineering, business, and legal skills necessary to create innovations and markets that create value and stimulate economic growth. Operatively, for engineers, these skills include the following:

  • Management of the Intellectual Value Chain
  • Techno-economic Value Analysis
  • Design of Innovations and Markets for Technology
  • Development of Intellectual Property Strategies
  • Construction of Intellectual Property Rights
  • Human Capital Management
  • Change Management

The ICM Masters program uses a "role-play" pedagogy, which is a fun, interactive method for learning that has produced particularly positive results thus far. Through the use of a "simulated business environment", it is possible for the instructors to practically illustrate how objectification and labelling of knowledge, such as trade secrets, patents, designs, copyrights, brands and other intangibles, determine and/or influence the innovative climate, the structures of a sector and the market as a whole.

Faculty members from Chalmers University of Technology and the Gothenburg School of Business and Commercial Law conduct the lectures in combination with industry executives and business and legal consultants. This program is currently run together with its sister program at the Göteborg Law School (ICM-L), In 2001, the ICM Masters program received Göteborg University s Grand Pedagogic Prize for its innovative pedagogic format.

The first of the three semesters contains a block of three courses given together with the CSE program and includes learning through case work and simulations, as well as an extended role-play scenario:

  • Design of Technological Innovations and Markets, CIP010 (5cr)
  • Intellectual Property Strategies, CIP055 (5cr)
  • Technology-based Entrepreneurship, CIP015 (10cr)

During the spring, in the second semester, four courses, centered on a number of simulations, allow for sophisticated action-based learning to occur. The four courses are:

  • Patent Engineering and Creative IP Design, CIP060 (5cr)
  • Incentives and Human Capital Management, CIP065 (5cr)
  • Intellectual Capital Valuation and Management, CIP070 (5cr)
  • Standards and Knowledge-based Market Formation, CIP075 (5cr)

The master thesis, which can be started as early as the summer and extended through the third semester, offers the students the opportunity to practice what they have learned together with a technology-based firm or consulting company. Most this period is considered to be more of an internship than a traditional thesis work, whereby the students work on real projects in a corporate environment. Students are free to find their own thesis partners or to choose from the existing ICM network of partner firms.

The last day for application is April 15th 2005. Further information and special application forms are available on our homepage at www.cip.chalmers.se/icm or emailing to ''info@cip.chalmers.se''. Applicants are required to have 100 points at the time of application and 120 points when the program begins at the fall.
