    • "The Extended Studies on Innovation offered a lot of new content that complemented my studies very well - from hands-on business model canvas creation to excursions with in-depth design thinking methodology application. The small group provided enough diversity to foster discussions while still allowing befriending the fellow students. At the time of the curriculum I was both a student as well as a startup founder - back then it provided me with a well needed "wider view" of entrepreneurial thinking. Years later I'm teaching design thinking courses at Google. I would recommend the curriculum to anyone who has an urge to create and collaborate. It might help you on the "how", the "what", the "why" and the "who".”

      Johannes Mauerer, Extended Studies on Innovation Alumnus 2013,
      Technical Program Manager, Virtual Reality (Daydream) at Google


    • “My project to develop and implement an idea management program within a large enterprise was strongly supported and accelerated at the i²c. I enjoyed the connections to industry and innovation experts and would recommend the curriculum to ambitious pioneers - both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.”

      Milica Sundic, Extended Studies on Innovation Alumna 2014,
      Innovation Manager at Deloitte Austria


    • "The Extended Studies on Innovation is the only sensible way at TU Wien to learn and practice entrepreneurship. Its combination of theory, exercises and hands-on projects was highly valuable for me - I recommend it to anybody having interest in implementing own ideas.”

      Christoph Krofitsch, Extended Studies on Innovation Alumnus 2016,
      Co-Founder and COO of byrd technologies GmbH


    • “The Extended Studies on Innovation is for people who want more than day-to-day university life. It is for people who have a vision and are crazy enough to follow it.”

      Fabian Dold, Extended Studies on Innovation Alumnus 2016,
      Junior Consultant at VIYEMA Business Consulting GmbH


  • “The main reason I got so interested in the start-up scene and entrepreneurship was the i²c Founder & Investor Talk Series as part of the Extended Studies on Innovation. What makes it so interesting for me is the international speakers with different backgrounds and the diverse and valuable topics they speak about. This gives you first hand insights into the scene.”

    Johannes Matiasch, Extended Studies on Innovation Alumnus 2015,
    Innovation Manager at CAG Holding GmbH


  • “The i2c curriculum is without a doubt one of the most exciting and valuable educational programs in regards to innovation and entrepreneurship in Austria. It is challenging and a lot of work. However, not only you learn essential skills that prove to be incredibly useful in any future career endeavors but more importantly it encourages you to think outside the box and pursue bold ideas.”

    Lin Liu, Extended Studies on Innovation Alumnus 2018,
    Investment Analyst at Tecnet Equity GmbH


  • “Learning the lean approach by understanding the problem and getting quick feedback from customers is just one aspect of this curriculum. We also realized the importance of a perfectly synchronized team while having a strong focus on execution. These key aspects along with our technical background gave us a truly innovative mindset to be not only entrepreneurs but also have the basis to become great visionary leaders. Therefore, the Extended Studies on Innovation was an educational and personal development program for me.”

    Peter Gerges, Extended Studies on Innovation Alumnus 2019,
