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 entrepreneurship.
