3. Course contents *

The student reads a book (from a selection made available by the teaching staff, please use the contactinformation in point 8 of this form), in which following subjects play a, more or less, prominent role:

  • innovation management
  • intellectual property
  • social consequences of innovation
  • labor law: national, international
  • negotiation techniques
  • international entreprise

The student makes a summary in English (about 30 pages) of the book in which he/she will:

  • make clear the position of the author. The student explains the propositions using examples which are NOT given in the book
  • give a personal and substantiated critique of these propositions 

The student contacts one or more companies in the host country, which are contributing to or wrestling with the problems discussed in the book. The discussion with these companies will give the student insights into the different point of view between Belgium and the host country on the subject discussed in the book. The results of this inquiry are presented in the paper.
