Course objectives

“That’s my life” is a series of inspirational interactive seminars where young entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs share their success stories and tips on how to make your career unfold and your ideas happen. Our guests tell the stories of their personal and professional transformations from student to innovator, entrepreneur, or gamechanger, while students have the opportunity to engage, discuss their career interests and ask relevant questions and advice to the speakers.

At the end of this interactive seminar series students will:

  • learn from the experience of young professionals;
  • understand better the various career options ahead after their graduation;
  • develop a more informed view on what does it mean to launch a business as a founder;
  • be able to discuss their career’s prospects and plans for the future;
  • plan on how to increase their employability skills.

Content summary

The course is composed of 8 seminars. We plan to have online seminars for the 2021 dates and to move back in presence at some point in 2022, as soon as we launch the new School of Innovation/CLab Trento location.

Teaching methods

Every interactive seminar will be around 90 mins long. The first part will host a presentation by a young professional. The second part will take the form of a Question & Answer session, moderated by the instructor.

Sessions will follow the Chatham House rule: anyone attending a session will be free to use information from the discussion, but will not be allowed to reveal who made any comment. The rule is designed to increase the openness of discussion.

Students will be asked to prepare for every session by completing a pre-assignment. A final paper will be asked as proof of completion of the credits.
