DescriptionInnovation has become an imperative not only for most private firms, but increasingly also for the public sector. Therefore, innovation management is considered one of today’s world’s most important competencies by CEOs and governments alike.
This programme offers a general background in innovation management, including the management of innovation from invention to commercialisation; innovation strategies, structures, and cultures; market forces of innovation and market-oriented new product development; the management of intellectual property rights and entrepreneurship.
The MSc in Innovation Management and Business Development provides a unique opportunity to experience the challenges of product development processes and to develop an understanding of the rationales on both the technology and the business management side. There is broad empirical agreement that such a multidisciplinary understanding is a key prerequisite for successful cooperation between R&D and marketing, and ultimately for innovation success. The aim of the programme is therefore to enhance students’ understanding of strategies, structures, processes, people and cultures so as to drive successful innovation and enhance the innovative capability of organisations.
Strong Competencies, Future Job OpportunitiesThe programme will provide you with the competencies and skills you need to fill managerial positions in both producer companies and consulting firms, working specifically with planning and implementation of innovation strategies, creation and advancement of innovative processes, and development of new businesses.
In large companies, graduates of the programme have become champions for innovation by bridging the gap between R&D, production and sales activities, thereby supporting and shaping the innovation culture.
In small and medium-sized companies, our graduates have acted as entrepreneurs, combining technological know-how with a profound business understanding.
