"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change".
Charles Darwin had it right in his famous statement. In business terms, if organizations don t change what they offer and the way they create and deliver them, then they may not be around much longer! The Innovation and Industrial Management (IIM) programme is concerned with analyzing problems and designing solutions for organizations operating in changing markets with evolving technologies.
Modern organizations face complex industrial and financial challenges of doing business domestically as well as internationally. Organizations need to constantly adapt to changing customers preferences, technological developments, workforce, global competition in ways which positively affect their future profitability and competitiveness.
The IIM programme therefore focuses upon management within the frameworks of short-term and long-term objectives and investments in relation to industrial dynamics and innovation. The rationale for combining these frameworks is that organizations make trade-offs between efficiency and innovation . The modern manager must learn to utilize and mobilize existing resources for current activities, at the same time as she and he must develop existing and new resources to develop new businesses and services.
Hence, the IIM programme overall objective is to provide theories, methods and tools to students as potential managers in organizations operating under uncertainty in complex and rapidly changing markets and technologies.
The programme consists of 60 credits core courses, 30 credits elective courses from other Master's programmes at Graduate School and a 30 credits Master Degree project. The elective courses can for example be within management, public management, environmental sustainability, entrepreneurship and logistics. The electives may vary from year to year.
