Global Innovation Management (GIM)
​Next application round 1.12.2017-31.1.2018

A graduate of the Global Innovation Management master’s degree programme possesses advanced knowledge in innovation management related theories and practices. S/he is able to develop and apply frameworks which help him/her to understand entrepreneurial activities, key strategies for firm growth, and how innovations are created, launched and managed in an international setting.

GIM is designed to transform students into professionals who are needed in cutting-edge international companies. Although there are some other innovation management master’s programmes in the world, they tend to be offered in technical and engineering fields. The uniqueness of the GIM stems from the fact that it is built on business sciences.

The GIM programme commenced in 2006 and it has become an established master’s programme that attracts well over 200 student applications per year for 25 study places. With this two-year master’s degree programme we attract graduate students who hold a bachelor's degree and the burning desire to use their capabilities and transform themselves.

To achieve our aim we employ research active academics to work in an stimulating study environment containing state-of-the-art facilities. The curriculum combines studies in International Business, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management in order to facilitate personal development.
