Description The initiative represents a newly created course Innovation Management. The course belongs to the core curriculum of the Master-level program Business Economics and Management. During its first iteration covered in this paper, the course was attended by 85 students. Due to the pandemic restrictions, teaching was delivered fully online. Despite the limitations, we stuck to the original plan of replacing the classical teacher-led model with the learner-led model. The course aimed to give students a comprehensive insight into innovations on two levels: individual/team and organizational. In the first case, students worked on a team project that simulated an innovation process in which students developed and tested a board game. In the second case, we let students understand strategic decisionmaking through case studies. From the feedback we continuously collected, we know that students very much appreciated the demanding yet very beneficial format of the course.
