About

The programme provides a strong background in the technical aspects of innovation and technology management whilst offering an underpinning in business and management studies.

Whilst other programmes address the management of technology from either a technical or a management perspective, the Bath MSc in Innovation and Technology Management is unique through its combination of both, integrating the two disciplines to ensure you have the necessary skills to manage across boundaries. This makes it the ideal programme for graduates wishing to bridge the gap between engineering and management.

A highly ranked business school

We have established ourselves as one of Europe’s leading business schools and 2016 marks the 50th Anniversary of the University of Bath, celebrating our past achievements and looking forward.

The School of Management is one of the UK's leading business schools. Currently ranked 1st for Student Experience (Times Higher Education 2015) and 1st for Business & Management (The Complete University Guide 2016), we are a leading centre for management research - placed 8th in the UK in the latest REF2014 for business and management studies, confirming the world-class standing of our faculty.

The Bath Advantage

Our combination of world-class research combined with a unique emphasis on real-world learning makes Bath an outstanding place to study. We are an elite institution, but also friendly and caring. We take pride in our heritage as one of the UK’s oldest business schools set in a beautiful historic city and we value the quality of life enjoyed by students and staff in a small, safe but vibrant university.

You will be taught by people who are discovering the new ideas that have not yet reached the textbooks, and then you can test these theories out in organisations around the world.

All our programmes provide far more than a valuable business qualification. They give you a recognised and proven head start in an increasingly competitive job market.
