The Entrepreneurial Leadership Seminar provided 18 students from the ETH Zurich (CH) with a very rewarding learning opportunity: A real case on strategy and innovation in close collaboration with the top management of GF. During two months, the students worked in teams on a specific Strategy 2020 project. By research, site visits and interviews with key stakeholders as well as GF experts they gained valuable insights into the structure and challenges of a global industrial company. At the end, the group presented their findings to GF's Executive Committee.
