Strategic Innovation Management

How do you build an organisation that is geared towards innovation? And how can you transform creative ideas into successful innovations?

**Best general MSc Business Administration in the Netherlands - Higher Education Guide Masters  2017 **

The MSc SIM deals with these challenges, and teaches students how to help firm manage the firm's innovation activities and, in the process, helps turn ideas into profit.

The MSc SIM considers the whole strategic process of managing innovations within companies and between companies. Our programme is structured around the following four topics: (1) where does innovation come from; (2) how can the firm organise internally for innovation; (3) how and with whom should the firm cooperate to maximise innovation; and (4) how can the firm capture value from innovation?

All of our courses are designed and executed by a small group of top academic researchers, and our programme is, therefore, strongly research oriented. By introducing students to the state-of-the-art in academic research, the aim of the programme is to give student the necessary tools to properly understand, evaluate and solve real-life cases, and to conduct their own research.

    Groningen has everything to make (foreign) students feel at home

    I came to Groningen because I wanted to expand my international (study) experiences and because Groningen offered the combination of Innovation and Strategy in one Master's programme.

    Although the programme was rather theoretical, I feel that it prepared me very well for my current job as a promotion manager. There was nothing about Groningen that I did not like: the city is just beautiful. I especially enjoyed going everywhere by bike, the variety of offers for students and, of course, the Queen's Day celebrations. Groningen has everything to make (foreign) students feel at home. Looking back a year after my return to Mexico, I feel that I especially enjoyed getting to know Dutch culture. In addition, the courses offered and the beauty of the city made my stay in Groningen an unforgettable experience. If I had to choose a Master's programme again, I would again be on a flight to Groningen.
