Business Project Boot Camp /Feb 22 – 23, 2024, overnight stay/

Business Project Boot Camp is a compulsory part of the CEMS Business Project course.

It has been developed based on feedback from students. The aim is to teach students valuable techniques, tips, and tricks to tackle their business projects.

Lecturers will help students organize their teams, provide them with BP structure, and share experiences from the business related to problem-solving, using different analytical tools, storytelling, and storyboarding.

The other purpose of this boot camp is to get to know each other better and socialize, as this element of Term 2 substitutes the course CEMS Block Seminar held in Term 1.
