In today’s dynamic business environment, managers are challenged to provide innovative ideas for new products, services, markets and new business models.
In order to successfully manage innovation, there is a need to constantly explore strategic opportunities in the global market, identify those with potential and be able to respond promptly to implement them. Managers also need to develop a thorough understanding of their organisation, its processes and environment, in order to be able to coordinate innovation across a wide range of activities.
The programme will show you how to identify the best management practices and strategies that enable firms to coordinate knowledge. You will also learn how to lead and implement innovation initiatives and apply analytical techniques within an organisation.
This Masters degree is ideal if you want to gain expertise in leading strategic innovation initiatives and to develop new ventures, products and services.
Building on the Business School's expertise in strategic organisation, decision-making, business analytics, international business and economics, this Master's programme educates innovation professionals. Graduates are well-equipped with theoretical and practical knowledge and skills.
Benefiting from our strong corporate links, you can reach out to different leading and managing innovation roles in organisations characterised by a fast pace of change, high degree of creativity and market globalisation.
