Innovation program structure

Innovation is mostly studied as a master’s program after you’ve completed a bachelor’s degree in another subject. This means that your innovation course is tailored to reflect your academic specialism and interests. Full-time students usually study an MSc over one year, but it can take part-time students two years to complete.

Some universities do offer a bachelor’s course in innovation over three or four years, but this is less common.

If you want to gain a further postgraduate qualification after completing your master’s, you can go on to study a master of philosophy degree (MPhil) or a PhD. An MPhil is an advanced research degree that typically takes two years to complete. A PhD takes the average student around five years of study.

You’ll be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and workshops. Most universities will invite local entrepreneurs and business leaders to deliver guest presentations; these are a great source of insight and encouragement. You’ll also be expected to keep perfecting your ideas and business plans during independent study time.

You’ll probably be assessed through critical essays, presentations, group projects, and client briefs. There’s likely to be a strong emphasis on reflection, learning from failure, and self-improvement.

The exact content and structure of your program will differ depending on your university and country of choice. However, most programs will cover these core areas, as well as offering a range of elective modules:

  • Innovation management
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Strategy and market analysis
  • Understanding organizational failure
  • Business models for success
  • Managerial economics
