Economics and Strategy for Innovation - BS1703

Aims

Technological change is a major challenge for firms that demands careful strategic planning in order to ensure the firm successfully negotiates the shifting technology landscape in which it operates. In order to sustain a competitive advantage, firms must also drive change themselves through the effective management of innovation.  In this module, we will explore how firms create, manage, protect and capture value from technological innovations. There are a variety of tools and processes which can help firms benefit from their innovative endeavours, which will be discussed in the module. However, the management of innovation is inherently complex, and not every firm succeeds. The module will also highlight several reasons why some firms prosper from innovation, whereas others don’t.  In addition, the policy landscape faced by firms is complex and we shall explore this and try to get some insights into the motivation of policy-makers.

International Study Tour - BS1417

Aims

The International Study Tour is an optional module that can be taken in place of the Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management Report. The aim of the tour is to give students a chance to experience first-hand the social and cultural dynamics of business in another country. The tour will consist of a number of visits to different companies across a range of industry sectors, as well as social and cultural activities.
 
Students who attend the tour will be required to write a 5,000-word report on a managerial theme related to the tour. Students are expected to engage with the companies they visit on the tour to provide information for their report.

The report will be the final assessment of the MSc Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management programme and students are expected to demonstrate they have met the learning outcomes of the entire programme.
