The first Certified University Course in IP Management at the University of Strasbourg, CEIPI, starts in September 2019 with the topic of “IP Strategy Development”. The Course is provided through one of the most advanced distance learning platforms worldwide. Participants are flexible in their education. Learning without time pressure, as well as with a job and family are possible. From the consistent glossary to examples, the certificate provides a comprehensive perspective on every topic, but also an up to date overview on modern IP Management. The students benefit from a long-standing teaching practice in IP-Management which has been established at CEIPI since 2005.

The Certificate “IP Strategy Development” provides a holistic approach on IP Management with solid theoretical basis and gives up to date insight in industry practice. The certificate course helps participants to implement the knowledge gained in their daily practice. Successful implementations are presented within published industry case studies. This IP-Management education is academically accredited, neutral, unbiased, and comprehensive industry wide. The course is based on current research projects with university and industry partners to provide the best knowledge available about successful IP-Management. The provided learning material is optimized for distance learning, and integrated within the whole program. Movies, lectures, scripts, glossaries and additional teaching material are given to ensure, that participants can follow the Course with integrated and consistent content. Here we provide the detailed content of the 10 Parts with 6 Chapters each of the Certified University Course on “IP Strategy Development”.

This is the first Course but within 3-month periods the next courses will follow on topics, which build upon the previous Courses, but can also be assessed independently. Within the modular system of the Certificates, participants can learn only what they currently need or strive for the Diplôme Universitaire IP Business Administration after completing all eight courses, which will become available during the next two years. Every Certificate can be attended as a stand-alone course. All courses refer to each other in terms of content, management skills and practice implications.
