Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MBA) (705N1)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

This module aims to equip you with the knowledge to understand and the skills to manage innovation at the operational and strategic levels.

The management of innovation is inherently interdisciplinary and multi-functional, so we aim here to provide an integrative approach to the management of innovation.

Specifically, we aim to integrate the management of market, technological and organisational change to improve the competitiveness of firms and effectiveness of other organisations.

We argue that the process of innovation management is essentially generic, although organisation, technological and market specific factors will constrain choices and actions. The module provides you with a broader understanding of the entrepreneurial process and the development of new ventures. We also cover how to protect innovation ideas for the betterment of the organisation. 

Conceptual foundations are matched with practical training to enable you to formulate and explore entrepreneurial ideas and opportunities.
