Innovation and Technology Management
Master´s degree program at UAS Technikum Wien
Application deadline: May 31, 2023, for applications from Non-EU states: April 30, 2023.
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.
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.

What Skills Will I Acquire in the Course of This Study?
Graduates of the program are characterized by an interdisciplinary analytical ability, which allows them to master new entrepreneurial problems and challenges with recourse to acquired knowledge and skills of various scientific disciplines (e.g. business administration, technology, computer science, sociology).
Since the need for systematic innovation and technology management exists in companies of all sizes and in all industries, graduates of the master’s program in “Innovation and Technology Management” have a wide range of opportunities in industrial companies, service providers and commercial enterprises. In the course of their studies, graduates also receive the tools they need to set up a company at a later date (based on an innovative business idea).
What Else our Students and Graduates Particularly Appreciate
In addition to its interdisciplinary character, the high practical relevance of the master’s program, which is established, for example, by lecturers from professional practice, the processing of real projects for partner companies and the writing of a master’s thesis with a strong application reference, is particularly important to us. A variety of didactic settings, be it case studies, excursions, computer-based business games or e-learning, ensure interactive and varied teaching and are therefore also very much welcomed by our students.
