Skills directly related to innovation include specialized knowledge and cognitive skills, the so-called ‘soft skills’, such as social, emotional, and behavioral skills, as well as special skills associated with entrepreneurship and leadership. Although some of these skills are cultivated from an early age through the formal curriculum in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), others must be acquired through other forms of formal education. The growing recognition of the importance of these broader skills has led many OECD countries to adjust their education systems to equip young people with the skills required to meet the challenges of innovation in the workplace and society at large.

In this context, the MSc “Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship” aim to enhance the knowledge and skills of participants to take advantage of unexplored opportunities and innovate in an existing organization, in a family business, or in their business venture as aspiring entrepreneurs. This is an innovative program by Greek and international standards, designed according to best practices of similar programs offered abroad, and includes attracting topics for the contemporary labor market, such as Innovation Management, New Venture Creation, Digital Transformation, Design Thinking, etc.
