Ten-Year Anniversary Celebration for the Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation

Our program celebrated a special milestone on 24 November, 2018: For the Ten-Year Anniversary Celebration of the Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation, the IBC Alumni Association invited key stakeholders to a festive event on the TUM Campus in Garching.

Around 150 guests attended the event, including numerous alumni from ten years of the EMBA IBC as well as current participants together with their respective partners and families. Lecturers and program management staff were also in strong attendance during the celebration.

The keynote speech opening the festivities was held by Dan Burns, head of the alumni association and graduate of the very first EMBA-IBC class. In their laudatory speech, Prof. Dr. Christoph Kaserer, who played an important role as dean at TUM School of Management in launching the program in 2008 and establishing the cooperation between TUM and UnternehmerTUM and Dr. Helmut Schönenberger, CEO of UnternehmerTUM, honored the great success of the future-oriented certificate program with its strong ties to the business world and start-up scene.

Completing a successful event, graduates of the Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation showcased their innovative start-up projects during a round of pitch presentations. The evening also saw a number of musical performances and lots of reunions with fellow students, accompanied by excellent drinks and catering. Aside from a visit to the innovative MakerSpace workshop, highlights also included a crafts and games workshop for all kids in attendance.
