Innovation: the right product at the right time in the right place

Do you have the inventor's gene? Are you interested in taking ideas and turning them into reality? Are you fascinated with new things which make our everyday life better or even change it completely?

Our graduates are trained to apply the latest technologies and methods to product innovation. They carry out and coordinate innovation processes in the areas of product planning, development and production.

From idea to  innovation - success in the marketplace

Various types of expertise are required throughout the innovation process - from marketing and development to production and service. The holistic approach of innovation managers is in high demand particularly at the interfaces of these different areas. That expert could be you. Someone with a good overview of new technologies and methods. Someone who recognizes potential, thinks ahead in planning products and who coordinates the development process right up to the market launch. Besides your technical knowledge, you will also be using your organizational and communications skills.

In our 3-semester master's programme we will teach you the holistic way of looking at things necessary, which is the hallmark of the Faculty of Business Administration and Engineering.
