The Innovation, Knowledge and Economic Dynamics (MIKE-E) programme at Aalborg University focuses on the interaction between knowledge, innovation and economic dynamics in a world characterised by globalisation, rapid change and uncertainty. The programme gives the students an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and analytical capability to make profound and reflective economic analyses and the capability to define and implement sustainable strategies in relation to knowledge and innovation.
With a Master degree in Innovation, Knowledge and Economic Dynamics (MIKE-E) you will get a specific and profound knowledge about how knowledge is produced, diffused and used. You will have obtained a specific capability to analyze dynamic processes and to find relevant solutions to essential problems.
The most important competences in the future will be knowledge, problem solving skills, business understanding, the ability to create, use, and manage networks, flexibility and innovation, and service orientation. As a graduate from the Master programme Innovation, Knowledge and Economic Dynamics, you will gain valuable competences.
Typical job opportunities are in firms, national and international organizations, and regulatory bodies where analytical work related to regional, national and international framework conditions and strategies for industrial and economic development are in the centre.
Innovation, Knowledge and Economic Dynamics (MIKE-E) consists of four terms (semesters) of five month each.
The first two semesters are devoted to studies at Aalborg University. The third term offers an opportunity for internship or study abroad as well as courses within the MIKE-E programme at Aalborg University. In the fourth semester students write their Master’s thesis.
The programme consists of courses, seminars and project work. The project work gives a good opportunity to reflect and use the theories, methods and tools presented in the courses and seminars.
Parts of the activities (courses, seminars, and project work) will be organized as joint activities together with the ‘sister programme’ within Business Economics: Innovation, Knowledge and Entrepreneurial Dynamics (MIKE-B), parts of the activities (especially courses in tools and methods) are organized as separate activities within each programme. Some lectures will be held by guest lecturers, there will be company visits to relevant companies, and workshops are also integrated into the courses.
