The new online course "Entrepreneurship & Technology: From Idea to Market", was developed and created in cooperation with Dr. Christoph Engl, MCI Learning Solutions and the Medical University of Innsbruck. The course combines topics such as the implementation of business ideas, intellectual property, finance and the regulatory requirements of technical products.

MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Course and enables students to cover topics autonomously and individually in a self-learning format. The MOOC enables the MCI to implement another innovative teaching and learning tool in the field of entrepreneurship and thus to prepare important topics in an interactive and multimedia way.

In five lessons, students can learn what the most important aspects of implementing a business idea are and which hurdles and challenges can best be avoided through efficient planning. In addition, they will gain initial insights into how to set up a business and the property rights that need to be taken into account. For those working in the field of medicine or medical technology, there is an additional unit on regulatory requirements to be observed for medical devices.

What is a MOOC?

A MOOC is an online course in a self-learning format, which combines the advantages of learning independent of time and place with the possibility of open, quality education at university level. The thematic diversity of the MOOC and the associated promotion of qualifications and competences are entirely in line with a future-oriented culture of lifelong learning.
