Why you should study Innovation & Entrepreneurship 

Your Bachelor's degree is only the beginning if you want to make a career as a manager later on. For many companies, a solid foundation of specialised knowledge is only sufficient for certain professions. A highly qualified and internationally recognised Master's degree is particularly worthwhile for you if you want to take on responsible tasks at a higher management level later on or even sit in the executive chair. However, the additional effort required for a Master's degree is not only worthwhile in terms of your career prospects. You can also specialise, deepen your knowledge and gain valuable experience and contacts abroad. Your future employers will reward all of this with praise in the application process, managerial positions and a starting salary that is up to 20 percent higher.     

 

This is what your Master’s degree in Innovation & Entrepreneurship at IU looks like  

Your Master's degree in Innovation & Entrepreneurship at IU International University of Applied Sciences provides the optimal foundation for entrepreneurial action. Modules such as Business Model Design, Digital Business Models, Design Thinking, Lean Start Up and Agile Project Management will enable you to develop innovative business models. The real speciality lies in the combination of traditional and digital business model development. Practical experience is not neglected either, as you will be able to develop your own business idea in our Start-up Lab. For your specialisation, you can choose between a “tech track” and a “biz track”. The latter includes topics such as advanced corporate finance, global brand management, leadership and change management. The “tech track” focuses on the areas of artificial intelligence, data science and data utilisation.  

 

A look into the future: What you will be able to do after graduating 

With your Master's degree in Innovation & Entrepreneurship, you’ll qualify for a variety of professions in the field of innovation management or for entrepreneurial self-employment. You decide for yourself. You will find suitable positions in both the industrial and service sectors, be it as a project manager of innovation projects, where you’ll be the interface between product development and marketing or as a consultant for product and process innovations, so that the cooperation between production and marketing works as smoothly as possible. You could also work as a coach for business model innovations, analysing industry and sector-specific developments and trends as the basis for business model innovations.
