MSc in Economics and Business Administration – Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship

Innovating and Developing Tomorrow’s Businesses

Innovation has become imperative, not only for private firms but increasingly within the public sector too. CEOs and governments alike now consider innovation management one of the most important competencies in today’s world.

This Program offers a solid background in innovation management and entrepreneurship including: management of innovation from idea to commercialisation, innovation strategies, structures and cultures, market forces of innovation, and the management of intellectual property rights and entrepreneurship.

The MSc in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship provides a unique opportunity to experience the challenges of innovation processes and to develop an understanding of the rationale behind both technology development and the development of markets and businesses. There is broad empirical agreement that a multidisciplinary understanding is key for successful cooperation between the technical and market-related focus in innovation and entrepreneurship, and ultimately for innovation success. The Program aims to enhance students’ understanding of strategies, structures, processes, people, and cultures so as to drive successful innovation and enhance the innovative capability of organisations, both in existing companies and in new ventures.
