In this Innovation and Global Sustainable Development programme from Lund University, you will learn the dynamics of both the macro- and microeconomics of innovation. You will get insights into how innovations are shaped by history in a path-dependent way as well as by the spatial context. You will learn about the linkages between innovation and capability-building, and economic, social and sustainable development over time and space.
The programme draws on frontline research in the field of economic geography, economics of innovation and economic history. Some of the key topics covered are innovation for sustainable development, economics of innovation and energy transitions.
With a MSc in Innovation and Global Sustainable Development, you will qualify for any profession that requires capability of intellectual judgement, evaluation and analysis of economic facts and ideas, and good communication skills. This programme will give you plenty of career opportunities both at national and international institutions such as the EU, OECD, ILO, World Bank, UNESCO, WTO, NGOs, governments and central banks, think tanks, multinational companies and consulting firms.
Graduates are well equipped for analytical and planning work in private sector, government and international organisations, as well as for work in non-governmental organisations, consultancy and research.
