A practical learning format

At Berghs, you learn practical skills, directly from industry professionals – not just theory. Whether your course is in marketing, strategy, design, advertising, PR, or digital communications (just to name a few) we’ll push your students to digging into a real-life project and learn by doing. This is our teaching style, the pedagogy that made us one of the most successful communication schools in the world.  Tutoring and feedback are offered along the entire process for the students to get professional guidance and a new perspective and on their work.

Below you can find an example of a 2-week intensive course in Creativity & Innovation. This course consists of two phases, ideation and execution, it includes client briefs, workshops, tutoring sessions and presentations. It illustrates our teaching approach well. Take it as an example, we look forward to developing a course just for you.

Example of a 2-week course setup

 

Introduction, online. The students connect via conference call, they meet with one another, learn from inspiring cases, and they set the ground rules for collaboration.

Week 1 – THINK. When we meet at Berghs, we hit the ground running.  The course starts with a client meeting and a project briefing. We dig into the case from day one. Participants are given practical tools for creative problem-solving and they are guided through developing, testing and refining their solutions.

Week 2 – MAKE. During the second week, ideas are turned into real prototypes. Students learn a series of tools for designing and prototyping. The course culminates with a final presentation where they pitch in front of the client and receive feedback on their work. 

Course end, online. After leaving Stockholm, participants are invited to connect one last time via conference call to discuss further progress and process key learnings.
