Course summary

We welcome students onto this course from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. Working collaboratively with people with a range of skill sets, you’ll devise creative solutions using strategic innovation to solve real world, complex challenges to social, organisational and commercial issues. Previous organisations we have worked with include multinationals like Mars and Unilever, local start-ups and charities.

As part of this course, you will:

Work on real life projects that will allow you to build up an invaluable portfolio of experience
Blend design, technology, and business and develop your entrepreneurial mind-set
Learn to manage change and innovation in a strategic way
Build up an invaluable portfolio of experience and network of contacts that will span multiple industries
Create strategic value through adapting a range of innovation approaches and resources - highly valued by future employers

Previous graduates from this course have secured senior roles with large organisations, and some have started their own businesses or gone on to PhD study.

On completion of the course you’ll be ready to take up strategic roles in many different contexts, where innovation is key. You’ll be highly employable, or if you prefer, equipped with the skills to launch your own business or continue in academia.

Innovation is increasingly a strategic priority, and by applying the skills you’ll learn on this exciting course, you’ll be able to lead and deliver positive change.

The portfolio you’ll build through the practical experience gained will give you a distinct advantage, especially when combined with the valuable network of contacts you’ll make in the business community.
