Innovation and Technology Management

Master´s degree program at UAS Technikum Wien

Overview

Application deadline: May 31, 2023, for applications from Non-EU states: April 30, 2023. Applications open from September 15, 2022.

Professional Innovation Work

Companies have to react to technological trends, competitors and increasing customer demands at ever shorter intervals. Those who do not innovate in a timely and customer-centric manner will be overrun. This is why managers are needed who not only understand the technical side of product, process or business model innovations, but who can also realistically assess their commercial and other effects. The competencies required for this are developed and continuously refined during the course of study.

Program

Both the enormous importance of innovations for corporate success and the complexity of the innovation process make systematic innovation work necessary. Innovations must not be left to chance, but should be systematically prepared, planned and implemented. Corporate innovation and technology management deals with these tasks.

Within the framework of the four-semester part-time Master’s program “Innovation and Technology Management” at the FH Technikum Wien, on the one hand, modern management-oriented concepts and methods (e.g. strategic management, creativity techniques, etc.) are taught, which are indispensable for successful innovation activities in companies. On the other hand, students deal intensively with the potentials, but also the risks of new technologies (e.g. Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, 3D printing, etc.), which are expected to form the basis of numerous future innovations.
