DIT launches MSc programme in Technology and Innovation Management
12 July 2016
The full-time level 9, MSc programme in Technology and Innovation Management (DT384) is targeted at science, engineering and technology graduates who have an interest in developing an innovation, management and commercial perspective on technology, and/or who wish to pursue management careers in a technology focused industry.
This programme will be delivered at DIT’s Aungier Street Campus, on a full-time basis over 12 months, and is designed for graduates who have achieved a 2:2 honours minimum in their primary honours degree.
The MSc programme in Technology and Innovation Management is designed in three distinct stages, with the first semester exposing the participants to key management functions relevant to industry. Whilst the second stage of the programme advances knowledge within specific technology management contexts, it also advances learning by adopting a more strategic and corporate level of analysis, focusing on key management challenges for the technology sector.
The third stage of the programme is the completion of a major applied, management-learning focused group consulting project. The Professional Development Module, which runs over the three semesters, prepares the students for the workplace, as well as preparing them for their applied consulting project.
The programme, in exploring the latest business and management thinking and examining how this relates to the current business environment, provides participants with key management tools and an understanding of how best to use these within their organisation.
Graduates will be capable of taking up roles within R&D, product development and commercialisation areas. Alternatively within SMEs, they can fill the role of the employee who has technical competence, but who also has knowledge and skills in the areas of product and process management, innovation, commercialisation and sales.
