Schumpeter for the 21st century

Conducting business in an entrepreneurial way and having the capacity for innovation are the most important competitive factors in many business sectors today. To this end, the Austrian-born economist, Joseph Schumpeter, created the term "creative destruction": The stronger incessantly pushes the weaker. The existing economic structure is altered through innovation. Companies failing to rise to this challenge disappear from the market place. However, anyone determining the rules of the game as an innovator, not only generates wealth and social benefits, but may also achieve a temporary monopoly profit.

Innovations are not just the rare, trailblazing "break-throughs". Value is alos generated from companies by creative product improvements, altered processes, new markets and more intelligent organizational syltes. Entrepreneurial opportunities are constantly arising in technologies and markets, and many ideas are just waiting for their commercial implementation. The ability to make use of them will become a key qualification for executives and managers. It is particularly at the interface between economics and technology that there lies a great deal of unexplored potential.

The Program

The Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation provides the appropriate skills and techniques, and thereby teaches entrepreneurial thinking and acting. The lecturers are internationally renowned experts.

In this program, innovation is understood as the process through which knowledge and creativity lead to product or service changes. Entrepreneurship is then the process through which knowledge and creativity generate new ways of delivering these products and services, either through a new organization or through reformation of an existing enterprise.

Course detail

Supply chain networks are the skeletons that underpin the business world. These networks are increasingly global in nature, with products consisting of parts manufactured in different regions of the world, assembled in other locations, and then shipped across continents to retailers and consumers. Such complex networks consist of manufacturers and their suppliers, shippers and carriers using various modes of transportation, distribution centers where the products are stored and sent to retailers which ultimately supply the customers. Supply chains involve many decision-makers interacting with one another, sometimes competing, and at other times cooperating out of necessity.

The Master in Supply Chain Management focuses on the analysis, design, management, and operation of supply chains in manufacturing and professional service industries. Using a broad definition of supply chain management (SCM), supply chain problems are being tackled in profit and non-profit environments. The former includes retailers, wholesalers, logistics service providers, manufacturers, and suppliers, while the latter includes the public sector and non-governmental organizations, for example in disaster relief logistics.

Format

You can choose two out of six specialization areas following your interests:

- Business Analytics in Supply Chains
- Location Analytics and Geospatial Data
- Retail Marketing
- Supply Chain Finance and Risks
- Sustainable and Humanitarian Supply Chains
- Transport and Logistics.

A thorough international experience

The Master's program in Supply Chain Management focuses not only on global issues connected to supply chains but also attracts many international students. The student body is made up of a broad variety of nationalities. The students who enrolled in the fall of 2014 come from 18 different countries, located on four continents. Hence, the program offers a truly international experience through an international education, an internationally renowned faculty as well as an international culture among the students throughout the two years.

Career Prospects

Exceptional management of the procurement, production and delivery of a firm's products and services - its supply chain - is an essential part of modern business life. The Master's program in Supply Chain Management at WU Vienna prepares graduates to stand out in this challenging and critically important career field.

About MathMods. MathMods is a. 2-year. Joint. MSc programme which can be taken in. 5 EU universities. Read more

About MathMods

MathMods is a 2-year Joint MSc programme which can be taken in 5 EU universities: University of L’Aquila in Italy (UAQ), Vienna University of Technology in Austria (TUW), Autonomous University of Barcelona in Spain (UAB), Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) & University of Hamburg in Germany (UHH), and University of Nice - Sophia Antipolis in France (UNS).

What makes MathMods so special is its peculiar mobility scheme, that is the fact that our students will be spending their postgrad years in two or even three different European countries. You'll be indeed studying in central Italy for your first semester, then move to Austria or Germany for the second term, and finally move again to 1 of our 5 partners for your second year, based on the mobility path you'll be assigned. 

Upon graduation students will be awarded a Joint Master's degree (or double, depending on where they spend their Year2).

Since its establishement in 2008 MathMods was funded by the EU Commission firstly through the Erasmus Mundus programme action 1 A (project no. 2008-0100), and later through the Erasmus+ Key Action 1 programme, project no. 2013-0227. We're currently applying for the Erasmus+ Call for Proposals 2018 to continue awarding Erasmus Munuds scholarships to our future generations. No matter the outcome, MathMods will still be running with the aid of Consortium grants and other local grants. Visit the sections Apply and Program Structure to learn more.

Programme Structure

Semester 1 focuses on Theory and is to be spend in L'Aquila (Italy)

Semester 2 focuses on Numerics and can be taken in Vienna (Austria) or Hamburg (Germany).

Then for Year2 each partner institution offers a specific curriculum or study path:

  • Mathematical models in social sciences (UAQ, Italy)
  • Mathematical modelling and optimisation (UAQ, Italy)
  • Stochastic modelling and optimization (UAB, Spain)
  • Modelling and simulation of complex systems (TUHH or UHH, Germany)
  • Mathematical modelling applications to finance (UNS, France)
  • Advanced modelling and numerics for applied PDEs (TUW, Austria)

Semester4 is dedicated to thesis work.

Aims

Mathematical modelling refers to the use of mathematics and related computational tools to bring real-world, challenging and important socio-economic and industrial problems into a form simple enough so that a good solution can be found in a reasonable time, while keeping the relevant features of the problem. Constructing models requires knowledge of enough mathematical theory, methods of solution which are really effective and efficient, computational tools at hand to do it, some knowledge of the field of application, and communicative skills to understand the important elements from experts in that field. Our master's programme tries to put together all these elements to produce professionals able to work in different relevant fields with the highest intellectual level and state-of-the-art tools.

Effective modelling and simulation is an art that require a lot of practice, so that problem solving, project development and team work are aspects that should be highlighted in any training programme, as our Consortium knows perfectly. On the other hand, the abstraction behind the specific application is necessary to realise that the same base tools can be applied, with the needed changes, to very different situations in various engineering fields.

Language

The language of the whole course is exclusively English at each of our five universities. Students must also attend (and acquire the relating credits of) a course of basic Italian language (first semester) and German language (second semester). Students will also have the opportunity to attend local language courses during their second year (spent at one of the five partners).

Employability

The area of applied mathematics on which this project is focused is a fundamental scientific field for a number of key technologies and sciences. The areas of the proposed tracks connect very well with various branches of the European high-tech industry, and one of the goals of the project is to enhance these connections by means of the release of well prepared professionals and researchers.

Career opportunities for graduates will typically arise in research and development laboratories, especially those defining and testing numerical models and procedures, either working for an specific sector or with a broader scope. Also, in big or medium size enterprises possessing their own research department or a division with an orientation towards research, in public or privately held Sector Technology Centres, and at computing centres involved in data processing or the creation of numerical codes for the industry.

Academic opportunities

The graduates will be able to apply successfully for PhD programmes if they wish so, as has happened for the three already completed cycles. In all the countries of the Consortium members, the programme has been validated as enabling the holder of the MSc degree to enter a local PhD programme. A good percentage of our students seem indeed to prefer pursuing a PhD before going to the industry or returning to their countries of origin. The intended level of the programme, together with the initial selection of the students, allows affirming that most of them could follow a successful academic career, after a suitable PhD.
