The Master of Science of Economics and Management of Innovation and Technology is designed to craft the problem-solving and managerial skills for wielding technology and innovation in effective ways. Students are faced with a challenging interdisciplinary program which blends strategic, managerial, organizational, and economic approaches to the analysis of innovation and technology, both at firm- and market-level.
The Master of Science in Economics and Management of Innovation and Technology is a two-year full-time graduate program entirely taught in English
The teaching approach is uniquely multidisciplinary: the program is organized around key problem-areas (e.g. competitiveness, innovation, internationalization, entrepreneurship, intellectual property rights), which are analyzed through relying on multiple disciplines and perspectives (e.g. economics, management, law, quantitative and statistical methods). On the basis of such a multidisciplinary approach, the program aims to train and equip students with the following critical skills:
The program aims to develop the ability to frame a specific problem within a broader context, to identify the major elements of the problem and cause-effect relations, to develop an appropriate conceptual framework and to assess whether empirical evidence supports conclusions. The ultimate objective is to train students to skilfully manage and analyze innovation processes in companies and in other parts of the society.
The program also aims to develop the students' ability to work in groups, by training them to build and manage teams. Likewise, a critical objective of the program is to train students to effectively design presentations and to acquire public speaking and communication skills.
A distinguishing objective of the program is the equip students with both quantitative and qualitative research skills. In particular, the program aims to develop the ability to draft hypotheses, collecting appropriate empirical data and conducting tests through the application of a broad set of statistical and econometric techniques
By the end of the program, students will be prepared to engage in a range of knowledge-intensive careers in large consultancies, multinational corporations and international organizations.
