Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation
The Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is designed to develop critical understanding and the ability to reflect on the importance of an entrepreneurial attitude in individuals and organizations.
It also aims to develop students’ critical thinking in order to evaluate the factors affecting the success of new venture creation and the innovation process; and provide the necessary tools to evaluate the attractiveness of new business ideas.
Using action-based learning aimed at offering insights into the complexity of the entrepreneurial and innovation process, students will evaluate problems seeking to respond to challenges. Students will gain experience with the unique qualities of the entrepreneurial decision-making process, as well as the skills of advanced networking and team working in order to compete in a rapidly changing business environment.
In partnership with:
Dr. Tiago RATINHO – IÉSEG & Dr. Louise SCHOLES – Loughbourough University London
“A unique double degree program immersed in an enriching multicultural educational experience, allowing students to develop the critical skills to drive change in existing companies or to develop their own startup.”
