Master's Programme in Global Management of Innovation and Technology

We are currently facing a number of global crises ranging from climate change to the prolonged pandemic.

These crises are forcing organisations to renew their activities, seek novel solutions and think outside the box. Trends and crises such as COVID-19 have challenged companies but also triggered them to search for new opportunities in their business ecosystems.

In such circumstances, the management of innovation and new technologies is more important than ever. We have already seen impressive results when organisations have made joint efforts to develop new vaccines, touchless solutions or ways to deliver food.

To prepare for the future, both large multinational enterprises and small new start-ups around the world are continuously looking for talented graduates who are capable of systemic thinking, who have an innovative and international mindset, and who understand how to manage innovations and new technologies effectively. Building smart and sustainable solutions for organisations requires a wide set of skills and capabilities that this Master's programme offers.

The slogan of this programme,"Build your own future", means that your studies will include both breadth and depth. You will need a broad managerial understanding of various systems within an organisation and their development, renewal and innovation. At the same time, you will be able to focus on specific sectors and select technical studies, electives and projects based on your own background, needs and future visions.

During your studies, you will be exposed to concepts that you will need as an effective manager, ranging from inventive design to strategic product and technology development, systems modelling or open collaborative innovation. Briefly, you will become familiar with the whole process from ideas to innovations to business value.

More importantly, applying theories and frameworks to real practical projects is an essential step in the learning process. Close collaboration with industrial firms will ensure the practical real-world application of new knowledge and theories. The connection with companies during the course projects, seminar assignments or your Master's thesis will be an asset for your future career.

As evidence of its overall quality of teaching, this Master's programme has gained ASIIN accreditation.
