What will you study?
You will study the types and characteristics of innovation, as well as the major barriers to the spread of innovation. This will enable you to recognise and welcome the increased rate of change and instability in the business and technology fields. You will gain an understanding of how innovation can be encouraged, captured and managed within an organisation, how this relates to knowledge management, decision making, organisational goals and objectives.
Case studies and team working are emphasised throughout the course and modules are regularly updated to ensure quality and relevance to industry. A Research Methods module prepares you for work on your project/dissertation, which often takes the form of a business plan.
