Education in Innovation and Entrepreneurship

As innovation and entrepreneurship become increasingly important for wealth and welfare, a new set of skills and competencies are needed. Not only do we have to push forward our theoretical understanding of these subjects, but new and practical skills have to be taught to future leaders in academia and industry.

Innovation och entreprenörskap, 15 hp

Affärsplanering för tillväxtföretag, 7.5 hp

Master programmes

The Unit for Innovation and Entrepreneurship offers two masters programmes, conducted in English. Below you will find shorter information about the programmes as well as links to respective programme website, where you will find more information about the content, course syllabus and admission requirements.

Innovation and Industrial Management (IIM) focuses upon the challenges of larger corporations, and the need to develop networks to react to changing competitive conditions of markets and technologies. Our students learn to critically analyze, as well as solve problems of relevance to modern innovation. Students work in specified courses in teams with cases with companies, to solve problems related to global, rapidly changing challenges of innovation management.

IIM is a two year programme, leading to an internationally recognised Master’s degree. Our alumni work in jobs ranging from supply chain and operations to consultancies to positions within innovation management functions in global multinational companies.

Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship (KBE) focuses upon both business and social entrepreneurship. Our students learn concepts, tools and techniques that will help them impact society. Students work in specified courses in teams with cases provided by selected external partners. These cases range from manufacturing, technology, services, creative industries and social projects.

KBE is a two year programme, leading to an internationally recognised Master’s degree. Our alumni work in jobs ranging from starting their own company, to being change agents in large companies to venture capital and banking sector.
