EGADE and TSE Students Participate in the First Finland-Mexico Innovation Camp

In this two-week project, student teams from these two schools worked together in Turku, Finland, and Mexico City.


Students from the Full-Time MBA at EGADE Business School - Tecnológico de Monterrey and the Global Innovation Management (GIM) at Turku School of Economics (TSE) worked together in the first Finland-Mexico Innovation Camp (FINMEXINNO).

Over two weeks, from February 18 to March 6, students from both programs teamed up to develop innovative solutions to tackle the global issue of overweight and obesity.

The initiative is financed by the Finnish National Agency for Education – TFK (Team Finland Knowledge), which fosters international student exchange to promote innovative partnerships between Finnish and Latin American universities and institutions.

Five EGADE Business School students participated in the camp, accompanied by Professor Sascha Fürst and EGADE Full-Time MBA Associate Director, Lilia Bárcerna.

Additionally, six TSE students attended together with Minna Storm, Peter Zettinig, Jonathan Van Mumford, and Minna Storm, project leaders and scholars from the University of Turku.

The students from both schools had the opportunity to meet representatives of Finnish and Mexican businesses, ranging from startups to major enterprises, as well as researchers and experts in diverse fields, who shared their inputs to develop design thinking and service prototyping processes.

The EGADE Business School-TSE collaboration started in 2022 with a joint virtual course in which 100 students from both schools participated.
