Ziele (*)This course aims to:

  • The main objectives of this seminar are to explore the various conceptual frameworks of business models and recognize opportunities for business model innovation, also based on digitalization.
  • Furthermore, this seminar considers the requirements and opportunities of sustainability in the context of business models.

Learning outcomes:

On successful completion of this course, the students will be able to:

  • LO1: Identify the conceputal and scientific foundation of business models and related topics in general and in relation to sustainability and digitalization. [subject knowledge]
  • LO2: Develop new business models based on conceptual frameworks. [transferable skills]
  • LO3: Identify and explicate the logical relationships between elements of a business model. [cognitive/analytical]
  • LO4: Analyze concepts related to business models and are able to discuss selected topics in detail. [cognitive/analytical]
Lehrinhalte (*)Students engage with business models, digitalization, and sustainability on both conceptual and practical levels. Based on the presented concepts, students and their groups engage with business model innovation on a practical level, creating an innovative business model concept. Continuous feedback is provided by both the lecturer and peers regarding the business model innovation. A final presentation from all student groups, including a Q&A session, concludes the group assignment.
Beurteilungskriterien (*)A maximum of 140 points can be achieved in the seminar. To pass the seminar, students have to acquire at least 50 percent of the total points in each of the three following assessment categories:

1. Seminar paper (group assignment) – “Business Model Design Report” The written paper is worth a maximum of 60 points, with 30 points necessary for a passing grade.

The assessment is based on the logic underlying the business model and the supporting arguments based on scientific literature. Students are required to outline the innovative business model design and ground their findings in theory. Additionally, groups are required to reflect on the process and their experience during the conceptualization of their business model.

2. Final presentation (group effort) The final presentation is worth a maximum of 20 points, with 10 points necessary for a passing grade.

3. Individual seminar paper Students are required to write an individual seminar paper regarding two questions. Each question needs to be answered academically by not exceeding 6,000 characters (not including spaces). Students are required to include additional scientific sources not represented in the reading package.

Lehrmethoden (*)The seminar is based on linking self-study and group work with inputs from both the lecturer and peers. Building on a foundation of theoretical knowledge obtained throughout “knowledge-sessions” at the beginning of this course, students are required to apply the theoretical knowledge to their group-assigned business model innovation.

The knowledge sessions include mini-case and ad-hoc group discussions on the presented topics. Atonally, optional insights of external practitioners enhance the learning experience and combine academic knowledge and practical application of knowledge.

Continuous feedback by the lecturer and peers is implemented throughout the semester to provide orientation and goal adjustment regarding the group assignment.
