IDBM Minor Studies

The IDBM Minor studies combine the very best bits of IDBM into a condense learning experience. Students join the IDBM community to learn IDBM core skills and collaborate with different disciplines and backgrounds in transdisciplinary teamwork settings.

The minor aims to provide participants with an opportunity to develop their competences and capabilities to successfully undertake creative teamwork, concept development, product, service and business design as well as project management through industry collaboration and tailor-made courses in design business management.

The minor consists of compulsory introductory course IDBM Challenge 6 cr and alternative courses. Students can choose the IDBM Capstone: Industry Project 15-20 cr as one of the alternative courses of the minor.
