Would you like to have a career that revolves around management, leadership, and innovation? Uppsala University offers you a good base for a career in technology-intensive, innovative businesses in different industries. Whether you start your own business or work for an established company, the Master’s Programme in Industrial Management and Innovation gives you a deep understanding as well as a variety of tools to manage complex innovation processes.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The industrial landscape of today is facing increased competition, rapid changes in consumer demands, political and regulatory instability, and growing environmental and societal challenges. For businesses to remain competitive and even excel in this new complex setting, it is important to be in the forefront of innovation and business development and to have an overall perspective on technology, leadership, and international business.
Complexity means that there are no pure technical issues; just as little as there are pure economic or organisational issues, neither in companies nor in society more generally. The steps between technology development, production, marketing and sales always involve considerations of a technical, economical, societal, and organisational nature. They often give rise to complex questions. Solutions will require deep understanding and practical skills.
During the programme you can expect to:
- become an innovator who can combine a deep understanding of technology and business with strong practical know-how on how to manage and lead innovative work
- close connection to both industry and research
- train to handle technical, societal and economical dimensions of the innovation process
The aim of this programme is to teach future leaders the ability to create an overview of the complex processes and structures within and around technology-intensive companies. Our aim is also that students who have completed the programme will become innovators who can combine a deep understanding of technology and business with a strong practical know-how on how to manage and lead innovative work.
A unique feature of this programme is that it is close to both industry and research. The students of the programme come from different technological backgrounds and are trained to handle technical, societal and economical dimensions of the innovation process.
You have a Bachelor’s degree in engineering, and you might have studied a few courses within the field of industrial management. You might have some practical experience working in the field after earning your Bachelor’s degree but you have not forgotten your broad theoretical base and study techniques. You are now looking for an education that gives you a theoretical understanding and practical tools for working with management related issues in technology-based companies.
You know that experts in industrial management and innovation are in high demand in many areas so starting to work right after graduation is something you are considering. A future PhD education is a possibility you might have thought about and you would value an opportunity to get in closer contact with current research.
