Management of Technology Section Teaching Prize for Ralf Seifert
Professor Ralf Seifert receives the 2017 Teaching Prize in the Management of Technology Section for his course on Supply Chain Management.
The course is often oversubscribed and receives top ratings every year from EPFL students doing a Master or Minor in Technology Management (MTE). Professor Seifert's main focus is to ensure that students take part in the course and to encourage everyone to speak up as much as possible. He uses several teaching methods, including formal lectures, simulations, case studies and outside speakers. He published many business case studies designed for teaching that he often uses to bring the topic of supply chain management alive in class. “I try to teach in the same way as the professors I liked the most as a student,” explains Professor Seifert.
