Innovation and entrepreneurship are the drivers of a successful business idea. Sometimes they are even used interchangeably, but they are not the same concept after all. One thing is clear: You cannot have one without the other. An idea may be very good, but if the entrepreneurial sense is missing, it will never become more than just an idea. At the same time, you are unlikely to start a business from scratch if your product is not innovative. With your Master of Business Administration with a specialisation in Innovation & Entrepreneurship, you will get the tools you need to turn your business ideas into groundbreaking successes with entrepreneurial competence.

To do this, you will first acquire a solid basic knowledge of business administration and marketing. This is the basis for successfully developing and selling your innovating ideas later on. You will learn how to build up a product, a brand or a company from scratch and position it in the market. With this knowledge, you then start your Innovation & Entrepreneurship specialisation. You will first deal with "Entrepreneurship Ecosystems", i.e. the social and economic environment that promotes a lively entrepreneurial culture. (Keyword: Silicon Valley.). You will also deal with the topic of intrapreneurship, i.e. the question of how you can introduce innovations as an employee in a company - or establish this corporate culture in a group. Finally, you will learn the most important methods and business models of innovation management and take an excursion into the field of "design thinking". Then you start your practical project and go through all phases of product development with your first own project- from the idea to market maturity.
