Organisations and businesses crave leaders who can generate innovative ideas and implement them. In this programme, you will learn how to develop an innovation strategy, create an innovation culture, foster creative ideas, and lead innovation projects. You will explore scientific theories and case studies, and address business challenges so you can apply your learning to real business situations. You will join other students with diverse backgrounds as you learn management skills for leading innovation activities.
Graduates from this programme stand out from other job candidates by their capabilities for exploring creative soltutions to current and future problems, and for seizing new business opportunities. They often find jobs in the big technology-driven organisations or consultancy firms. You will find career opportunities in leading digital transformation, new business development, and innovation project management across a broad range of industries.
In this programme you can learn more about specialist areas of business such as circular economy, open innovation, and intellectual property law. There are opportunities for those with technical experience, programming skills, and knowledge about AI, as described in the report written by McKinsey about the future of work and what it means for jobs, skills and wages.
Think strategically about organisations
Overcome resistance to new ideas and implement innovations
Lead successful and meaningful changes and innovations in products, services, technologies, and business models
Innovate in organisations and, perhaps more importantly, continuously innovate yourself
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.
