Masters programme in Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Innovation and entrepreneurship are becoming increasingly important for wealth and welfare. To increase innovation and entrepreneurship, not only do we have to push forward our theoretical understanding of these subjects, but we also have to teach new practical skills and competencies to future leaders in academia and industry. We offer two masters programmes, conducted in English. Below you find shorter information about the programmes as well as links to respective website, where you will find more information about content, course syllabus and admission requirements etc.
Innovation and Industrial Management
Innovation and Industrial Management (IIM) focuses upon the challenges of larger corporations, and their need to interact and collaborate with external actors in order 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 and industrial management. The programme includes courses in which students work in teams on cases with companies, to solve problems related to global and 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 operations to management consultancies, as well as in positions within innovation management functions in global multinational companies.
The Master programme in entrepreneurship (Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship) provides students with both research-based and practical knowledge within entrepreneurship. Our students learn concepts, tools and techniques that will help them to start and develop new firms, as well as renew existing businesses. An important component of the programme is the collaboration with external partners (firms and other types of organizations), through which the students get access to real-life cases to work on, together with support and resources from GU Ventures.
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.
