Course Introduction

This postgraduate degree in business innovation, with a special focus on e-business, helps you understand the importance of innovation for rethinking management, business strategy, corporate assets, intellectual property rights, institutions, organisations, firms, entrepreneurship and globalisation in a changing world.

This degree can also be useful in becoming a logistics and distribution manager, marketing executive, or systems analyst.
