Master in Economics of Innovation and GrowthInnovation and entrepreneurship are prime factors behind value creation, economic prosperity and employment growth. These initiatives can take place on several levels – enterprise, regional and national – and lead to new businesses as well as increased competitiveness for those already established. The growing awareness of the importance of innovation among knowledge-based firms, financial markets and policymakers has created a demand for a programme which integrates aspects of technology, economy, financing and other related areas.Programme outlineThe programme is focused on the economic aspects of the innovation process, i.e. the process of commercialising inventions.
