Abstract: In this article we present a study of the LAB studio model from the perspective of knowledge creation. The LAB studio model is a pedagogical model, which develops connections between working-life based problems and the recognition and development of the related business prototypes and start-up companies. The LAB studio model is theoretically grounded in a constructivist view of learning with a project-based learning at its core and has a key goal of educating entrepreneurial competences in higher education. Based on the case study, consisting from a literature review of knowledge creation and a survey, the qualitative results analysis suggests that the model offers good support for the organizational knowledge creation. As a future research more studies are suggested to study the aspects of knowledge creation in the LAB studio model.
