What happens in the world of business and public administration? How is innovation managed in company strategies? How does government design policy? How can innovation and policy address sustainability, health, energy and IT security issues?

Both the public sector and businesses struggle with the question of how to address sustainability, health, energy and IT security issues. Many of the challenges that society faces are rooted in the natural or computer sciences but have strong links to other disciplines. Solutions require scientists with an additional understanding of the societal aspects of these problems, and the ability to speak the language of and work with all possible stakeholders like scientists, civil servants and politicians.

In the Master's in Science, Management and Innovation you will broaden your scientific knowledge and learn the skills you can use to make a direct contribution to society.
