Master in Business Administration
The aim of the SUPSI Master of Science in Business Administration with Major in Innovation Management is to train key players in companies, who can take on positions of responsibility, manage strategic projects and set up autonomous entrepreneurial initiatives.
The Master’s programme can be completed in two different ways: attendance at the Department of Business Economics, Health and Social Care (with a significant contribution from Department of Innovative Technologies in the form of a collaboration agreement), or in blended learning mode at the Fernfachhochschule Schweiz (FFHS).
The inno3 Competence Centre has scientific responsibility for the Master’s programme, and contributes to the curriculum with the "Economics and Management of Innovation" and "Innovation Research Project" modules.
The "Economics and Management of Innovation“ module teaches how to understand and distinguish between the various forms of innovation, and to interpret both the mechanisms governing the dissemination of innovation, and the links between innovation, competitiveness, economic growth and regional development. Students can also learn about the various phases of innovative processes in businesses, and how to manage them. Finally, the module allows them to determine specific metrics for measuring and monitoring innovation, and also to learn about, understand and compare innovation policies at the local, national and international levels.
The "Innovation Research Project" module, on the other hand, requires students to conduct applied research work in teams. These real-life projects are executed in collaboration with other SUPSI departments, and the objective is the introduction of innovation.
