By studying this module, our students will understand the nature of, and relationships between creativity, innovation and both entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial behavior. Applying theories relating to the support of creativity and innovation to a range of contexts and critically analyze the processes through which creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship can be managed will be the topic of the 3days teaching happening in Cluj. The aim here is not just to talk about creativity – the aim is to develop a more creative approach to different types of problems, thus, we are going to go through steps of solving a problem using creative techniques of active learning: visualisation (drawing; using mind maps); storytelling (identifying the journey of what happened when a problem occurs); illustration/example using arts (film).
Our special speaker during this module Executive Talk is Sorin Stan, Managing Director at Fluentech SRL. The event will take place on Saturday, 7th of September, starting at 11.30. Please register here.
