When a social, corporate or technological model reaches its maturation phase, it comes to a point where what used to work no longer works. Today, innovating in new products, services and processes are still necessary but not enough. In order to keep being competitive, there is the need to adapting to a new environment, which has new features and technologies.
Therefore the Master in International Business Innovation (IMBI), does not intend to talk about what innovation is, but prepare you to be able to innovate in a global environment where understanding the importance of new technologies, personal improvement, etc. would allow you to build disruptive Business Models, which would provide new value to the society and greater positioning for your business.
In fact, Innovation is nothing new in itself. Throughout our history, as human being, we have always innovated. What today is new is the way, the resources, technologies, and models with which we face a new, different and global environment.
The Master in International Business Innovation (IMBI) seeks to develop the capabilities and skills of companies staff from different sectors and departments to enable them to respond to the new challenges they face in the current society. An environment that has suffered a structural change needs a different, more entrepreneurial approach.
Therefore, this program is designed for professionals, entrepreneurs, managers, students, and everyone who wants to acquire a new vision and dimension of the current environment and needs to consolidate and develop an innovative mindset to create and manage a business through an innovative leadership.
Throughout the Master in International Business Innovation (IMBI) you will develop all your skills, competencies and your entrepreneurial sense, having to design and develop a Business Innovation Plan, which should be viable in the current market. The Business Innovation Plan will be done in work teams.
Therefore, our goal is that as you go through the master you could be able to consolidate the knowledge learned in your project. Along the master are three mentoring sessions held by experts, who provide guidance and support to project development.
Finally, at the end of the master each team will make a presentation of their project in front of a panel of specialists and experts, who will evaluate them.
