The program (60 ECTS) is a one-year program for regular students and 18 months for part-time executive students:
Block 1: Inspiration
This first block about ‘Inspiration’ focuses on the broad theoretical framework of the master's program. Studying processes of value creation and change/innovation/emergence from the complexity/experience perspective. Complex adaptive systems and complexity thinking play a central role in block 1, to open up a different academic perspective of reality. The perspective of complexity gives rise to a different dynamic view of change and innovation in human systems which we have developed in the design methodology of Imagineering.
Block 2: Ideation
Within the framework of the second block ‘Ideation’, the program aims to explore creative processes within organisations and possibilities for transformation. The block is divided into theoretical, material, practical examples and activities that fuel discussion and invite reflection on creativity, innovation and meaning; the basic components for organisational, business and social transformation.
Block 3: Implementation
The third block of the program ‘Implementation’ aims to offer an understanding of the management issues that arise when ‘continuous creative business development’ has to be a core competency of the organisation. Following the Inspiration and Ideation phases, the Implementation phase focuses on the design of the organisation in such a way that the realisation of the experience concept can be optimally executed.
Block 4: Performing the research-based Imagineering project
The fourth block is dedicated to performing the research-based Imagineering project at or in cooperation with an application company. This means that through the final deliverables the students need to demonstrate that they are professional masters in Imagineering.
