The Master of Philosophy specialising in Inclusive Innovation (MPhil) is an interdisciplinary, research-based degree that leads to the development of novel and sustainable solutions for social challenges. Read more

The Master of Philosophy specialising in Inclusive Innovation (MPhil) is an interdisciplinary, research-based degree that leads to the development of novel and sustainable solutions for social challenges. Join like-minded visionaries on a rich learning journey, and spend a year working both individually and with others where expertise, life experience, passion and innovation converge to support new possibilities and ideas.

Overview

The MPhil Inclusive Innovation is a one-year modular programme designed to be a collaboration between GSB faculty and pass innovators. The MPhil curriculum is structured around three main components: learning, engaging, and reflecting and creating – this can be referred to as praxeology (the study of purposeful human action).  

1. Learning

The programme provides a grounding in the fundamentals of inclusive innovation, as well as the challenges facing those working on social and environmental issues in Africa today. A typical class flows from student presentations and group feedback to focusing on topics such as values-based leadership and business model innovation, integrative thinking and design thinking.

2. Engaging

From the start of the programme, innovators identify a problem of interest and start developing a deep understanding of the context behind the issue they’d like to address. They conduct independent research, including a literature review, field studies, interviews, observations and assessment of market needs. This scholarly approach leads to a fuller understanding of the practical possibilities for contributing to the issue concerned.

3. Reflecting and creating

Personal reflections and peer-to-peer feedback all help to spur on the intellectual development of inclusive innovators and their ideas.

The MPhil’s desired outcomes are:

  • A practical outcome or artefact – prototype, framework, business model, etc.
  • A research thesis that has a strong narrative around the artefact development and clearly illustrates a contribution to knowledge.
  • An embodied experience of business model innovation (entrepreneuring)

Inclusive innovators who complete the MPhil will be skilled at:

  • Undertaking and managing complex innovation-focused projects.
  • Identifying and coping with the internal experience of entrepreneuring.
  • Using systems thinking, design thinking and integrative thinking to take on business-model innovation.
  • Planning a new venture or process, including a detailed strategy and feasibility.

MPhil Benefits

You will gain the following during the MPhil in Inclusive Innovation programme:

New thinking

This MPhil degree encourages inclusive innovators to think critically and innovatively to meet new demands. The programme gears participants towards becoming advanced strategic and systems thinkers.

Shorter invention cycles

MPhil innovators will test assumptions and prototype solutions in a “living lab” environment. It’s a free-thinking cross disciplinary space that helps shorten the cycle time from invention to application of innovations and solutions through interaction and debate with consumers, experts, industry and organisations in the relevant ecosystem.

Access to industry experts

Innovators will be exposed to key local and global specialists – from deep-content experts to market experts in the community. The insight and feedback they receive will help them iterate and improve their solutions at various stages.

Networking

Inclusive innovators will build personal relationships with leading experts across different industries and will be plugged into the next generation of African innovators.

Personal fulfillment

Self-reflection, introspection and personal growth are core elements of the programme. The MPhil develops inclusive innovators who boldly pursue ambitious ideas and dreams.

Programme description

Given the ever-increasing volume of data that businesses have access to today, there is a demand for employees who have computational and analytical skills and who can help inform business decisions to increase efficiency and ultimately build a competitive edge. Our Masters in Business Analytics has been developed with just that in mind and aims to train students to understand the variety of business environments as well as importance and relevance of decision problems facing organisations and ways of solving these using a variety of techniques.

Students will learn how to apply descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics of big data concepts and techniques to generate valuable insight that can assist with decision making. Last, but not least, the Masters will provide students with hands-on experience in applying these concepts and using these techniques and most of the popular analytics software through their projects including industry projects. In sum, the programme aims to equip students with the skills required to interpret, conceptualise and convert Big Data into useful information and thus enabling students to make better informed decisions as future business managers.

Programme structure

All students attend and complete four core courses in Semester 1 and four option courses in Semester 2. The programme concludes with a 60-credit Dissertation. Details of core and option courses are shown below.

Core courses - Semester 1

  • Principles of Data Analytics
  • Predictive Analytics and Modelling of Data
  • Prescriptive Analytics with Mathematical Programming
  • Business Analytics with Heuristics

Option courses - Semester 2

  • Performance Analytics with DEA
  • Media and Web Analytics
  • Industrial Analytics
  • Business Analytics with Simulation
  • Inventory Analytics
  • Supply Chain Analytics with Games

The Dissertation: Each student conducts an individual research project on a subject within business analytics, chosen in consultation with an academic supervisor. MSc candidates write up their work as a Dissertation (maximum 15,000 words with a maximum of 10% margin either way), which is submitted by the end of August. Some Dissertation topics are offered that involve working with business, NGOs or other organisations.

Learning outcomes

General Educational aims are to:

  • Enable all participants to recognise, understand and apply the language, theory and models of the field of business analytics.
  • Foster an ability to critically analyse, synthesise and solve complex unstructured business problems.
  • Encourage an aptitude for business improvement, innovation and entrepreneurial action.
  • Encourage the sharing of experiences to enhance the benefits of collaborative learning.
  • Instil a sense of ethical decision-making and a commitment to the long-run welfare of both organisations and the communities that they serve.

Specific Educational aims are to:

  • Understand and critically apply the concepts and methods of business analytics.
  • Identify, model and solve decision problems in different settings
  • Interpret results/solutions and identify appropriate courses of action for a given managerial situation whether a problem or an opportunity.
  • Create viable solutions to decision making problems.

Career opportunities

It is anticipated that the demand for data analytics employees will continue and indeed grow as analytics is viewed as a key competitive resource by many companies. If market forecasts are anything to go by then the Big Data technology and services market will grow at a 26.4% annual growth rate to $41.5 billion through 2018, or about 6 times the growth rate of the overall information technology market (Source: IDC). This will inevitably lead to further growth of the market for employees in the area of data analytics.

The new MSc in Business Analytics will offer students from a range of degree backgrounds the opportunity to equip themselves with an artillery of concepts, methods and applications of business analytics along with hands-on and practical experience in applying them to industry projects in different business settings. It is not just about being able to analyse and digest the data available but to then translate this into effective decision-making. In sum, we expect the new programme to open a range of career pathways in analytics for our graduates including business consultants, business analysts, business intelligence & analytics consultants, metrics & analytics specialists, analytics associates, data analysts, solution architects, business process analysts, management consulting associates, and operational research consultants.

With a population of 150,000 Dundee is not too large but has virtually all the cultural and leisure activities you would expect in a much larger city. It is situated beside a broad estuary of the river Tay, surrounded by hills and farmland, and for lovers of the great outdoors it is hard to imagine another UK location that offers so much all year round on land and water. The University is situated in the centre of Dundee, and everything needed is on the one-stop campus: study facilities, help, advice, leisure activities... yet the attractions of the city centre and the cultural quarter are just a stroll away.

The MSc in Business Research is a one-year programme which provides students with advanced training in the research skills, techniques and methodologies to conduct their own research in business. Read more

Overview

The MSc in Business Research is a one-year programme which provides students with advanced training in the research skills, techniques and methodologies to conduct their own research in business. The programme can also be taken part-time over two years.
Students who successfully complete the master will have developed the knowledge and skills to begin the preparation of a doctoral thesis and may therefore request admission to the PhD in Business. Attainment of the MSc degree also prepares students for careers in research and policymaking in the public and private sectors. You must note, however, that it is a research-oriented programme and not a professional MBA.
The programme attracts students from around the world. A typical class profile has a percentage of international student of over 60%. As the master is taught in Spanish (55%) and English (45%), a good command of both languages is needed.
The MSc in Business Research offers international research excellence in business administration and management. It also provides the means for students to develop skills and abilities in research that meet the highest standards. Students are exposed to a rich training curriculum as well as a wide offering of master classes, research seminars, workshops and conferences. These offerings shape academic skills and at the same time create sensitivity for practical business opportunities and challenges.

You can find more information on the programme content here: http://www.ub.edu/business-school/msc-in-business-research/#phdb-programmecontent053b-d05d

Students must complete 60 credits comprising 30 core course credits and 30 free-elective credits. Given its research orientation, the master degree requires a teaching model that combines a practical approach with master classes, which provide the conceptual foundations of business research. Lessons in the computer room are essential in order to master statistical techniques and databases.

Career Opportunities

Students who successfully complete the master will have developed the knowledge and skills to begin a doctoral thesis and may therefore request admission to the PhD in Business. This is one of the most popular career choices for MSc in Business Research graduates. In fact, the master is intended to serve as a foundation for doctoral research, which in turn constitutes the first step towards an academic career.
Not all students decide to follow this route, though. Some prefer to make the transition to the labour market straight after finishing their master degree and others wait until they have completed their doctorate. According to data provided by the Catalan government, 95.4% of all PhD social sciences graduates find a job in less than three years, and the unemployment rate is below 3.3%. Therefore, the MSc and the PhD allow students to improve their position in the job market.
The Faculty of Economics and Business has a dedicated Careers Services office, which offers guidance and facilitates employment for graduates. It manages the Job Bank, where companies post job offers and available work placements. The Career Services office also works to strengthen students’ entrepreneurial skills and offers the Coworking Space as a place for developing projects and sharing ideas and strategies.

About. Read more

About

The course recognises a need for organisations and their managers to become focused on the integration of quality and continuous improvement and as such, the course has been shaped and designed by leading academics and business leaders using the European Foundation Quality Model (EFQM) Excellence Model as its inspiration.

The European Framework for Quality Management (EFQM, 2013) introduces fundamental concepts of excellence which are practitioner-focused. The framework encourages organisations to strive towards eight concepts of excellence, which can only be achieved by actually doing something about it. As such it is a practical model which helps organisations to realise their potential. All modifications to these eight fundamental concepts of excellence, in addition to the new associated emphases, have been fully reflected in the proposed module content for this revised MSc Business Improvement course.

Students will study a diet of modules which will help them to gain a practical understanding of a variety of business improvement subject areas.

Students first work towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Improvement, taking a total of eight modules. Once these have been successfully completed students can then move on to complete the full Master's qualification by completing a Research Methods module and a Business Transformation Project.

The course provides a structure to business improvement which allows students to follow a logical journey. Part 1 of the course introduces students to the “enabler” aspects of business improvement, part 2 of the course focuses on the “results” of business improvement. In semester 3, students are given the opportunity to research a complex business improvement problem in depth via a supervised project.

Modules

Courses are continually reviewed to take advantage of new teaching approaches and developments in research, industry and the professions. Please be aware that modules may change for your year of entry. The exact modules available and their order may vary depending on course updates, staff availability, timetabling and student demand. 

  • Financial decision making
  • Leadership and change management
  • Innovation management
  • People development and involvement
  • Strategy
  • Quality and process management
  • Operational excellence
  • Business transformation project

Career options

This course is primarily aimed at equipping students with the skills to allow them to improve the operational performance of an organisation. The MSc Business Improvement course can lead individuals into positions focused on business improvement within organisations. There is a demand for these skills in the economy as organisations strive to become more efficient and effective.

Students who have studied on the course over the last few years have had successful careers in organisations such as Bombardier, BE Aerospace, FG Wilson, NI Water and other public sector organisations.

Your programme of study

A good MBA can really make you stand out for the top jobs in any type of business in fast paced major growth, transformation, innovation and operational change in any country and business discipline area. You develop insights across the top discipline functions such as finance, strategy, economics and project management, marketing, leading and managing people, supply chain and new business creation. These are all disciplines within themselves which you rapidly acquire skills and knowledge to manage successfully. These are essential disciplines to many known high street brands, service industries, online businesses and high growth start ups which ensure that if you start a business using existing skills or a new team that you are likely to provide a high growth enterprise very quickly. Alternatively you may have been employed within a sector undergoing a real threat to business existence which involves you in making changes very quickly at operational level using the range of disciplines you learn.

In this situation you can overcome the threats quickly to ensure long term viability whilst managing short term risks to business and you can be a very sought after individual due to your ability to quickly assess what needs to be done with minimum impact to allow long term profitability. Many brands have recently been disrupted by mass communications and the rapid rise in online trading, some were able to quickly re-organise their business model to avoid going out of business, some were able to innovate and others relied on a wide variety of techniques to allow them to reinvent themselves. MBA positions are normally fast paced but very rewarding in terms of achievements and business satisfaction.

The Global MBA is ideal if you are a working professional, you want to change direction, you want to add business skills to pursue an enterprise or you have other commitments which prevent you from studying at a University campus. It is delivered by one of the ancient universities in the UK in partnership with IDI

Our students are highly employable:
They develop the expertise that employers want from computing graduates - our Industrial Advisory Board includes experts from a range of industries including Amazon, Scottish Enterprise Tayside, NCR, Chevron and Microsoft

They are prepared for a wide range of good career prospects in computing - the UK faces a massive shortage of graduates qualified to fill the 120,000 new jobs in computing and IT every year

Computing at the University of Dundee is ranked 21st in the UK according to most recent Times Good University Guide and 12th in the UK according to the Guardian University League Table 2009. The University of Dundee has powered its way to a position as one of Scotland's leading universities with an international reputation for excellence across a range of activities. With over 18,000 students, it is growing fast in both size and reputation. It has performed extremely well in both teaching and research assessment exercises, has spawned a range of spin-out companies to exploit its research and has a model wider-access programme.

Dundee has been described as the largest village in Scotland which gives an indication of how friendly and compact it is. With a population of 150,000 it is not too large but has virtually all the cultural and leisure activities you would expect in a much larger city. It is situated beside a broad estuary of the river Tay, surrounded by hills and farmland, and for lovers of the great outdoors it is hard to imagine another UK location that offers so much all year round on land and water. The University is situated in the centre of Dundee, and everything needed is on the one-stop campus: study facilities, help, advice, leisure activities... yet the attractions of the city centre and the cultural quarter are just a stroll away.
