Om programmet

Short Summary

The master’s programme in Innovation and Industrial Management equips you for a future as a potential manager in organizations operating in an increasingly uncertain and complex world, with rapidly changing technologies and markets. As a student of the programme, you will get an education with a strong focus on personal and professional development, engage in close interaction with industry, and have ample opportunities for exchange studies.

About the Programme

The master’s programme in Innovation and Industrial Management focuses on the question of how to manage organizations in an increasingly uncertain world, with rapidly changing technologies and markets. Modern companies face complex industrial and financial challenges, particularly in adapting to technological, financial, and consumer changes that affect their future profitability and competitiveness. Global competition requires organizations to develop internal and external analyses of industrial processes and market conditions with particular emphasis on innovation, industrial dynamics, and investments. Ignoring renewal and innovation poses long-term threats to the survival of every organization.
