The Master in Management of innovation and entrepreneurship aims at providing students with theoretical knowledge and analytical tools to identify and exploit entrepreneurial opportunities for innovation, change management and organizational transformation. The drivers of new business creation, the ability to identify business opportunities offered by the markets, the analysis of human, economic and financial resources needed to create and develop new projects represent some of the topics in the entrepreneurship field. Entrepreneurship and innovation are interwoven. Innovation is conceived in a broad sense, spanning from new knowledge generation to enter in new markets to the development of new products, processes and management approaches, based on innovative organizational solutions and competitive strategies. Alongside the creation of new companies, the ability to innovate and seize the opportunities for investing in new markets by existing companies is a condition of success for the revitalization of more mature businesses. The course structure is meant to strengthen the acquisition of knowledge and skills concerning the analysis and interpretation of business decision-making processes, with a specific focus on the design, implementation and evaluation of entrepreneurial and innovation processes taking place in a variety of industrial sectors where goods and services are produced.
