What is the role of top research universities in nurturing innovation and entrepreneurship? How can students, faculty, alumni and friends work together to create a thriving startup ecosystem? This is what Andrea Kozma, Director of the CEU InnovationsLab incubator, and Peter Szilagyi, Associate Professor and Head of the CEU InnovationsLab FinTech Section will talk about at the next Info Session with CEU’s Department of Economics and Business.
We will discuss how the CEU InnovationsLab links business and academia in close cooperation with CEU’s professional full-time/part-time MS programs in Business Analytics, Finance, and Technology Management and Innovation. We will explore how we train, guide and support students and alumni whether they seek to develop a startup that will disrupt the market, up the ante for an established venture, or join the professional world as an innovation leader. We will talk about how we stimulate a culture of business and social entrepreneurship across CEU. The Info Session will feature a panel of MS students who have first-hand experience in working, venturing and mentoring in CEU’s innovation ecosystem.
Join us for the discussion and learn more about our programs, have an informal chat with faculty, students and alumni, and get all your questions answered about our MS programs!
