Abstract [en]

This paper explores the results and perceived effects from an IT project management course given in Informatics at University West in Sweden. The 10-week course requires students to manage and execute real-world projects as a form of work integrated learning (WIL). For the past three years, the course has been performed in cooperation with the Innovatum Startup program offered by the Innovatum Science Center in Trollhättan, Sweden. Each year Innovatum Startup hosts a match making session where the startup companies present their projects and propose concrete projects that the university students can choose as their real-world project. This paper presents the results regarding the startups' and students' satisfaction with the course as well as the outcomes of the students' work for the startups and the effects on the students' future employability, networking and entrepreneurship. The results are based on surveys given to the participating students and startup companies. The findings show a high level of student and startup satisfaction with the WIL collaboration and the findings reaffirm similar research that WIL courses benefit student employability and networking. However, the findings do not show a significant impact on entrepreneurship.
