More about the programme

Hear from our current students

Being a student of the MSc Management of Innovation has taught me a lot of practical skills, and pushed my hands-on mentality. I especially liked the balance between academic knowledge and practical applications in the courses. It gave me space to combine creativity and business knowledge, which now I am eager to share in my future career because I know I will stand out with my skills. Every instructor encourages you to share not just your opinion but also your knowledge. This feeling of sharing and collaborating to generate the most innovative ideas, concepts, strategies, or cultures was a unique part of my study. I think that this master program suits anyone that is a bit more open-minded and eager to change business environments into a better one. With every student joining from a different field, the knowledge generated in class will rise tremendously. This is a study which is not seeking homogeneity, but which profits from heterogeneity. Everyone is welcome, every opinion is appreciated as long as you respect and help one another.
