The Creative Box MOOC story

The Creative Box MOOC was created in 2015 by Orsolya SADIK-ROZSNYAI and the Institute of Advanced Education at ESSCA. The idea of this 5-week course is to discover the backstage of innovation by learning the path to create an innovation.

Participants choose from two learning paths, based on how much time they want to devote.

Users can follow the discovery route to watch the different testimonies of professionals from companies but can also go further with the creative route which allows them to test their own innovation. The Creative Box course is open to everyone, free and accessible online.
Once the course is successfully completed, participants receive a certification according to the course followed.

The different speakers come from companies such as PSA Peugeot Citroën, Warner Bros, Total, Bosch, Darty, The CSA Institute, SAP, but also from startups such as TravelerCar, Cook-ease, Fitness Connect, etc.

To go further, ESSCA online Campus offers advanced 3 to 6-week summer & winter courses.

Summer & winter courses will allow you to reinforce your innovation and creativity skills and help you to obtain ECTS credits in addition to a certificate of completion. We offer more than classes we are an online campus and as such value student life experience.
