The three electives indicated above vary year to year, depending upon demand and resources. Graduate School and Master of Science in Innovation and Industrial Management (IIM) provide a list of electives so that students can choose in advance.

Elective courses related to IIM and offered annually include ‘Entrepreneurship and New Business Development’ and ‘Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship’.

For Study Abroad, information and application processes will also be provided for exchange with partner universities and study abroad. A few students may be eligible to write their MSc thesis at a partner university (see further under Stena Scholarships). Criteria for selection include excellent study results at the Graduate School, excellent English language proficiency and a clear purpose for their studies abroad. 

Innovation and Entrepreneurship are important phenomena in society with address new ideas, new companies and renewal in existing companies. The two are closely linked, and therefore the students in KBE and IIM co-read some courses such as Innovation Management & Research Methods. 

There are also distinctions, when we examine our two Msc programmes.

Innovation and Industrial Management (IIM) addresses larger organizations, including dedicated courses within the program on issues of large companies such as operations management and global technology management. IIM has company projects within specific courses, and students usually write a thesis with a company.

Knowledge based Entrepreneurship (KBE) addresses smaller entrepreneurial organizations , including dedicated courses within the program on issue of smaller companies, such as Knowledge Intensive Entrepreneurship and Entreprenuership: Service and Design. KBE trains the students to become entrepreneurs, working on projects in parallel with learning objectives within certain courses. The project ideas can come from the students, from our partner GU Holding and from broader society, such as social entrepreneurship.
