The Innovation and Industrial Management programme of the University of Gothenburg focuses on the question of how to manage organizations in an increasingly uncertain world, with rapidly changing technologies and markets. Modern companies face complex industrial and financial challenges, particularly in adapting to technological, financial, and consumer changes that affect their future profitability and competitiveness. Global competition requires organizations to develop internal and external analyses of industrial processes and market conditions with particular emphasis on innovation, industrial dynamics, and investments. Ignoring renewal and innovation poses long-term threats to the survival of every organization.
Equipping you for the future
The courses, projects, and thesis work focus on providing you with theories, methods, and tools to analyze theoretical and practical problems, and to design solutions for organizations operating in dynamic markets and with evolving technologies. Importantly, all organizations have to make trade-offs between efficiency and innovation, balancing short-term profitability with long-term development; as a student of the programme, you will accordingly develop the skills and insight to overcome these challenges.
Our programme emphasizes personal and professional development, helping you enhance your team-work and leadership skills and aiding you in planning your future career.

We provide a highly engaging educational setting in our programme, which includes a range of teaching methods and a mix of individual and group work.
