Bootcamp Proposal 2019

 

In 2018, IBS introduced the idea of the Innovation and Enterprise Bootcamp. 50 Business students, and 6 Computing students completed 3 very intensive weeks of hard work. The student and staff feedback has been excellent.

 

We followed the methods that 12 staff members learned during 3 weeks in Lisbon in July 2017 when the University funded them to attend the European Innovation Academy. We participated with some of the best Universities in the world, and 5 of our students went to the 2019 EIA and performed exceptionally well. We are confident now that there are staff in IBS, and in the Computing Program who understand the method very well and can implement it.

 

We would hope that, in the future, other staff who were in Lisbon will join us in organising a number of bootcamps for the benefit of all our students.

 

The Gengdan Bootcamp took place over 3 weeks in July and was a substitute for the Year 2 and Year 3 Company Internships. In IBS we were unhappy with the quality of many of the internships, and we are now confident that the bootcamp is a much better experience and it connects students with the realities of Business in a very effective way.

 

All content and activities were focused on real-world business issues.

 

Students participating had to maintain high professional standards of work, collaboration, time-keeping, productivity, and commercial focus.

 

The Language used was English, and even students with weak English made great progress over the 3 weeks. Two foreign specialists, who were graduates of EIA, and three local teachers delivered the program. The learning was fully assessed using a range of methods.

What are the benefits of the Bootcamp Model?

The method brings together students from different disciplines to work intensively in Group Situations.

 

It involves:

  • Innovation

  • Interdisciplinary Co-Operation

  • Problem Based Learning

  • Integration and Sharing of Knowledge

  • Group-work and Teamwork

  • Specialist Knowledge Inputs

  • Industry Experts Presentations

  • An Offsite visit to a High-tech Incubator

  • Fully developed Business Plans as an Output

 

We believe that the method can rapidly introduce real inter-disciplinary learning to the Gendang Campus, and that it is the kind of approach now found in the most innovative American and European Universities.

Proposal

We now propose that all Departments in the University should co-operate in providing a range of bootcamps for students from all programs across the campus.

 

The three-week bootcamps will be a substitute for the four-week internship.

 

Local teachers will be fully involved in the delivery and support of the students learning.

 

Specialists foreign teachers will come to the Campus to lead the bootcamps. This will also be a very significant learning opportunity for our local teachers who can experience the method at first hand, and participate even more fully in the future. It will be an important opportunity for Teacher Training and Staff Development in a very cost-effective way.

 

Bootcamp 1: Enterprise & Innovation – This will repeat the 2018 Bootcamp based on the EIA Model.

 

Bootcamp 2: Coding & App Development – A Bootcamp for Computing Students, members of the Coding Club, and other interested Students

 

Bootcamp 3: Corporate Finance & Company Reports – The idea arose from a discussion between Mrs. Wang and the Dean. Financial Management students and others will engage closely with the company reports of Chinese and International Companies to give a real insight into Financial Management. Our Financial Management Students tell us that they do not have a difficulty in getting an internship for one-month, but that companies do not really involve them in Financial Management issues, and what they can learn is limited.

Recently Dr. Guo has visited Pricewaterhouse Cooper who would be interested in helping.

This is also a Teacher Training and Staff Development opportunity.

 

Bootcamp 4: eCommerce – During the Academic Year beginning September 2018, we introduced two commercial training companies to provide eCommerce practical training to Year 3 International Trade, and Year 3 Marketing students. This was successful, and we can build a Bootcamp using these training companies input.

 

Bootcamp 5: Internationalization – The students who wish to go abroad from all Departments to continue their Bachelor’s Studies as 2+2, or who wish to go abroad for a Masters Program, will have an in-depth experience which will rapidly improve their English, their Cultural knowledge, and their ability to make applications to foreign Universities.
