The programme focuses on innovation from different perspectives including strategy, project management, entrepreneurship, management control and finance.

To remain innovative, companies need to develop new products – and do it quickly. Innovation and it's ability to create competitive advantage for firms is the very core of this concentration. Through an introduction to the theory and practice of innovation, you will learn to develop an innovative mindset. To manage a company effectively through innovation and business development, you need structured and informed analysis. Each innovation has different aspects, some referring to its value proposition, some to its future users, some to probable responses from its competition, and so forth. An innovation does not become successful by taking a one-sided focus on these aspects. 

You will learn about the processes of identifying ideas for innovation, strategies in different types of companies as well as how innovation can become a part of the overall strategy of a company. You will also gain knowledge on how to put innovation on the corporate strategy agenda.
