Innovation is the engine of growth and a priority for governments, top companies, and newly established firms. Innovation and technological evolution shape competitive forces and change industries, affect our lives and modify societal structures.

Would you like to recognize the forces driving these changes? Learn how to make good strategic choices for creating and executing innovation? Study how to turn your ideas into market applications? Understand how digital platforms, algorithms and artificial intelligence are changing the world?

This Master of Science will allow you to build a foundational understanding of the process of innovation from a micro and macro perspective, providing you with analytical skills, decision-making abilities and a problem-solving attitude. You will be involved in a challenging interdisciplinary program with courses that blend strategic, managerial, organizational and economic approaches to offer insights in the process of innovation and technological change.

Learning is facilitated by lectures, real-world case studies, peer-to-peer collaboration, interaction with top scholars and speakers from the business community, thematic workshops and direct involvement in research projects. Your academic experience will be enriched by the diversity of students and faculty with different nationalities, cultures, and educational backgrounds.

Graduates of the program are prepared to cover roles related to the analysis and management of innovation in consulting companies, international organizations and regulatory authorities, and to hold managerial positions in innovation-focused business organizations. In addition, some of our graduates choose to launch their own startup or undertake a PhD program.

Program Director

Claudio Panico

We train our students to come up with new and ambitious ideas and provide them with a broad set of skills to turn these ideas into business solutions.

Updated every year to reflect changes in the fields of innovation and management, our program will allow you to navigate evolving technologies including digital platforms and the sharing economy, learn database management and data visualization, study modern industrial organization and advanced strategy, and learn to make strategic decisions in the digital economy.
The strengths of this MSc are our highly motivated students and our dedicated faculty engaged in research at the cutting edge of technology and innovation management.
Our courses are designed to help you understand the multifaceted aspects of the innovation process: how innovative ideas are produced – including products, processes, but also services and business models – how they are created, how they reach end users and their implications for consumers, companies and the economic system as a whole. Because innovation is transversal and common to all sectors and industries, and a fundamental engine of economic growth.
