Strategy, Innovation and Management Control

Overview

The Mas­ter in Strategy, In­nov­a­tion, and Man­age­ment Con­trol pre­pares to­mor­row's ex­ec­ut­ives for their role as or­gan­iz­a­tional lead­ers. The pro­gram com­bines the­ory, prac­tice, and in­struc­tion in rel­ev­ant so­cial skills, for an in­teg­rated ap­proach to or­gan­iz­a­tional lead­er­ship. Great em­phasis is placed on devel­op­ing the ab­il­ity to identify new en­tre­pren­eur­ial op­por­tun­it­ies and, based on that ab­il­ity, cre­at­ing strategies for achiev­ing sus­tained suc­cess.

The 21st cen­tury is char­ac­ter­ized by chal­lenges that are unique in the his­tory of man­kind. Tech­no­lo­gical ad­vances and so­cial devel­op­ments, to­gether with a high level of in­ter­con­nec­ted­ness due to glob­al­iz­a­tion and the con­tinu­ous ex­pan­sion of the In­ter­net are dra­mat­ic­ally chan­ging the world's dy­nam­ics. Change is hap­pen­ing faster, in a more com­plex way, and oc­curs on a more pro­found level. As a res­ult, man­age­ment tasks have never be­fore been as de­mand­ing as they are today.

Sim­ul­tan­eously, en­tre­pren­eur­ial op­por­tun­it­ies have never be­fore been as great and di­verse as now. For ex­ec­ut­ives to op­er­ate ef­fect­ively in this prom­ising yet risky eco­nomic en­vir­on­ment, they need to be equipped with a broad range of know­ledge, tech­niques, and skills. To­mor­row's lead­ing ex­ec­ut­ives will have to com­bine know-how in the areas of strategy, in­nov­a­tion, or­gan­iz­a­tion and change man­age­ment, and have pro­found know­ledge of how to man­age and con­trol busi­ness from a fin­an­cial per­spect­ive. They will need ana­lytic and cre­at­ive skills, to think and act as en­tre­pren­eurs.

The Mas­ter in Strategy, In­nov­a­tion, and Man­age­ment Con­trol of­fers a pro­found edu­ca­tion to develop these ne­ces­sary skills. The in­ter­na­tional ori­ented pro­gram com­bines the­ory, prac­tice, and so­cial and in­ter­cul­tural skills and bridges the gap between stra­tegic man­age­ment and en­treupren­eur­ship.

possibilities for a double degree

In­ter­na­tional fo­cus

Se­lec­ted stu­dents have the possib­il­ity to gain a double de­gree at one of 4 renowned part­ner uni­versit­ies. All SIMC stu­dents can spend a semester at one of WU's 120 part­ner uni­versit­ies for gradu­ate stu­dents.

Di­verse stu­dent body

The in­ter­­n­a­­tional or­i­ent­a­­tion of the pro­­gram is com­ple­­men­ted by stu­dents of up to 30 di­f­fer­­ent na­­tion­al­it­ies and in­ter­­n­a­­tional guest lec­tur­ers in vari­ous courses and areas.

Man­age­ment tasks have never been as de­mand­ing as they are today. Our SIMC mas­ter pro­gram pre­pares to­mor­row’s ex­ec­ut­ives for their role as or­gan­iz­a­tional lead­ers. The pro­gram com­bines the­ory, prac­tice, and in­struc­tion in rel­ev­ant so­cial skills, for an in­teg­rated ap­proach to or­gan­iz­a­tional lead­er­ship.
