Innovation in the Creative Economy (961N1)
15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)
The creative economy has been a significant driver of growth in recent years, because of the role of the cultural and creative industries. You will learn the key aspects underpinning the creative economy and its main drivers, and develop a deep understanding of how innovation takes place in the creative industries. You will also learn how these innovations are commercialised. By linking theory with real-world practices, you will discover how firms and other organizations leverage creativity, innovation and technology in order to create value, and how this value is captured and marketed.
