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.
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.

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.

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.
The programme has been designed around the specific themes of Innovation & Technology Management. The units are structured to provide a strong and coherent narrative. The introductory unit takes a high level look at innovation management, introducing the key themes and concepts that will be explored in more depth throughout the year.
Subsequent units are focused on an aspect of innovation such as: creativity; strategy; new product development; and commercialisation. Every unit is bespoke - that is, tailored to the exact needs of the ITM programme. Each unit is delivered in modular format, over 1 week, which creates a unique, in depth learning experience.
The programme finishes with a Dissertation of between 10,000-12,000 words.
