Master Degree Programme in 
Innovation Management

Be at the forefront at CAMPUS 02 in Graz as a student in the first Master’s in Innovation Leadership in Austria.

Innovation and leadership united! Strategic innovation management and profound leadership skills are the keys for success. Yet, generating ideas, developing them into an innovation and ultimately introducing them to the market is just one aspect. But shifting an entire company to innovation is what leads to success. Management level decisions are taken on a daily basis regarding whether companies want to simply stay as they are or develop further. One thing is certain: businesses can only come to grips with market challenges through continuous further development, which is why innovation managers as highly qualified senior executives are needed more than ever.

Focus

Teaching content is tailored to the challenges encountered in senior leadership roles. Students acquire strategic leadership skills and competences for developing and realising innovation strategies in companies. Skills in business development, market trend and trend use identification in combination with the ability to master methods and tools for developing new business models, qualify our graduates as highly skilled managers. In terms of these competences and qualifications, the Master’s is also the ideal complementary degree programme for engineers!

By the way: Engineers choose the Master’s to acquire complementary competences and to use it as a springboard for reaching the upper levels of management.

 

As a graduate of the Master’s in Innovation Management, you have all the skills required to modify and optimise existing business models. You can develop strategies and technologies to implement innovations through the excellent use of the required methods, tools and processes.

It has long been known that innovation will become increasingly more important as a prerequisite for financial success in a digitalised age. With a degree in Innovation Management from CAMPUS 02 in Graz, you have the key to successful management in your hands and are well equipped for interdisciplinary action, successful business leadership, innovation-driven design and contemporary business development.

MAKE A CAREER WITH THE MASTER’S IN INNOVATION MANAGEMENT

Highly successful companies are looking for people who have drive and ambition — people like you!

The world has always been and still is constantly changing. What we take for granted now was unthinkable a few years ago. What we regard as impossible today might become a part of everyday life tomorrow. Behind these developments, there have always been innovative and visionary people who understand what today’s consumers and tomorrow’s markets require. To be able to do so, companies require managers who are able to control these developments together with and as a part of the executive management. Therefore, managers with considerable expertise in innovation leadership and innovation-oriented business development are in great demand. As a graduate of our Master degree programme, you fulfil these requirements, can identify and evaluate consumer trends and new technologies, and are able to manage change and reorient entire organisations in an innovation-led manner.
