Thanks to the final project, participants who so wish can agree to carry out an innovative consultancy or entrepreneurship project. In this way, companies can benefit from the knowledge, tools and skills acquired by students throughout the programme in real business situations.
The development of this project lasts 6 months (face-to-face EMBA) or 1 year (blended EMBA) and must be compatible with the programme and professional activity.
The project may be carried out as a group or individually, depending on its characteristics and, in any case, preserving its confidentiality.
Participants will be mentored by expert lecturers and other professional collaborators.
They will need to choose between two options:
Participants who choose this option will work in groups for real firms, focusing on developing the business. Faced with areal strategic problem, the groups will be guided by a team of strategy consultants to find the correct problem-solving methodology. The company thus obtains an external vision with a proven methodology for the search for innovative solutions.
Entrepreneurship (Intra-company or external)
Those who opt for the entrepreneurship project, do it either within their company (intra-entrepreneurship) or at an individual level (ex-novo). To do so, they must analyse an innovative business opportunity, develop it and create a feasible business.
Being an entrepreneur has its appeal although there can be difficulty finding the market need or gap that would guarantee the project's feasibility. For this reason, Deusto Business School and Tecnalia Ventures have joined forces to present technology-based opportunities for entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs of the on campus Executive MBA will attend a workshop where working groups of Tecnalia professionals will present their technological projects (new technology-based companies or new lines of business) and will be able to find experienced entrepreneurial profiles in the Deusto participants to start up the project.
