IMI at Hospitality award 2008

719

Published on

our IMI powerpoint project entry for the award of best initiative of a hotel management school for 2008 hospitality award.

Our entry is a whole term at our international university centre focused on Creativity & Innovation for all stakeholders

Within the slides we try to describe all the various (many of them still ongoing) activities, their positive outcomes for student/staff/institute

the core themes are in the need for creative solutions in the industry, leadership development, new solutions and innovation in society (diversity, inclusivity and technology)

Since this particular term is still ongoing (2008) we have setup a project specific wiki where we constantely update the individual projects through text and images (done on some pages by students, others by staff)

This WIKI can be seen and used by anyone (other schools for example) as a kind of benchmark for similar ideas at any other school.
