Businesses today face issues of rapid innovation and change that have led to increased demand for graduates with a thorough understanding of engineering practices and new support technologies for engineering management and business model innovation. On the MSc in Technology-Based Business Development you will learn to collect, generate, understand, and assess new technological knowledge, new business opportunities, and new central technologies for companies’ operating models.


During the first and second semesters, the MSc programme applies theories, models, and concepts to real-life problems. These first two semesters give you the opportunity to work on assignments that originate with a company and may also be carried out within the same context. In the third and fourth semesters, students can intensify their engagement with a company so that most of their credits are gained in the corporate environment. The company could also be the student’s own start-up company within the framework of our business incubator.


The MSc in Technology-Based Business Development is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Teaching is conducted as a combination of traditional lectures, teamwork, individual study, and empirical investigations using observations, measurements, and interviews. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.


Graduates will work between innovations and operations to ensure positive relations between new and existing company business areas. The Technology-Based Business Development programme is an excellent foundation for a career as an innovation facilitator, operations specialist, technical sales manager, product manager, business developer, or R&D project manager.
