Masters in Innovation. The Master of Design in Social Innovation applies the lens of design thinking to address some of society’s most intractable social, environmental and economic challenges. Its focus is on the organisational models, methods and approaches needed to shape positive social change, sustainable growth and new business models. In the face of the promise of untold growth we are now confronted by a harsh reality: that in the second decade of the 21st century the traditional model of ‘business as usual’ is no longer viable. In applying a range of approaches to designing and prototyping social ventures and models of organisation, the MDes in Social Innovation will equip you with a practice-based approach to embedding innovation in the area of sustainability, community resilience, corporate social responsibility, venture philanthropy and organisational agility. Working with a cross- disciplinary team of professionals, the course will allow you to learn about radical ideas, evolve these ideas and test them in a ‘lived’ organisational environment.

Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

University of Luxembourg, Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years September 2017 Luxembourg

Entrepreneurship has become an increasingly popular activity that can be evidenced in different spheres of the economy and society.

Entrepreneurship has become an increasingly popular activity that can be evidenced in different spheres of the economy and society. More commonly, entrepreneurial behaviours are associated with new start up ventures where risk, ownership and management are combined to exploit new market or technological opportunities. But such activities can also be seen in corporate, social, public, civic, community and small business contexts to reflect organizational efforts to sustain competitive advantage, uniqueness and novelty. This is partly because the twenty-first century is characterized by a fast moving, competitive and global economy. Sustaining a competitive advantage requires that individuals, companies and nations are able to anticipate and stimulate (rather than merely manage) change. Entrepreneurship is about exploiting ambiguities and contingencies. More importantly, entrepreneurship is about experiencing a tension between ‘what is’ in the present and ‘what should be’ in the future – and then converting that tension into an entrepreneurial problem that can resolve the tension. Such a process demands concepts and knowledge from different disciplines, and the integration of these concepts with the know-how and practical experience of daily business practice. The programme aims at achieving that integration, optimally balancing theory and know-how. Entrepreneurship is a programme of the Luxembourg Business Academy, a partnership between the University of Luxembourg and the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce. Who is the programme for and what will the programme offer you? The programme is a two-year full-time Master’s degree, which is targeted at: Bachelor graduates in any discipline from Luxembourg and the Grande Région wishing to... [-]

Masters in Innovation. THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN SPANISH In the past, traditional designers simply created. Today, designers are professionals who act as the link between the different departments in a company, often leading the change between the company and society. The creation of wealth and of new values is handled by those who know how to manage uncertainty and use it to bring improvements to both individuals and companies.

Design today is complex and requires an understanding of both companies and society to provide solutions. In addition to the aesthetic results, design is an essential mental process for generating innovation.
