About the Programme
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change”
Charles Darwin had it right in his famous statement. In business terms, if organizations do not change what they offer and the way they create and deliver them, then they may not be around much longer! Organizations need to constantly adapt to changing customer preferences, technological developments, and global competition in ways that positively affect their future profitability and competitiveness.
The Innovation and Industrial Management (IIM) programme is concerned with analyzing problems and designing solutions for organizations operating in an environment associated with ever- changing markets and evolving technologies.
The modern business leader must learn to utilize and mobilize existing resources for the organization’s current activities, while at the same time being able to explore new resources and skills to develop new businesses and services. The IIM programme focuses on providing students with knowledge, skills and insights on how companies overcome the challenges of combining ‘efficiency’ with ‘innovation’, or put differently combining ‘doing what we do better’ with ‘doing what we do different’.
Our graduates have entered a variety of professions, based upon their education, such as Business Development Analyst, Management Consultants, Innovation Manager, Brand Manager, Supply Chain Manager, Market Analyst and Procurement Analyst.
The programme consists of 67.5 credits core courses, 22.5 credits elective courses from other Master’s programmes at Graduate School and a 30 credits Master Degree project. The elective courses can for example be within entrepreneurship, project management, and, environmental sustainability.
Within the Innovation and Industrial Management program, we provide opportunities to take part of your studies at one of the part universities of the University of Gothenburg. Further we provide a unique opportunity for our students to apply for a grant to go abroad during he Master thesis process.
Within three months of graduation from the Innovation and Industrial Management programme, about 100% of the students had employment, almost all with work-tasks related to the education.
