Overview

Our vision for the Insights and Innovation programme of the Dublin City University  is to forge the next generation of world-class innovators to join the food, horticultural and beverage sectors who will use their creativity, talent and skill to drive sustainable, scalable, profitable and insight-led growth for their host companies and for their industry.

This 18-month programme combines study and work placement in a Bord Bia company. It begins with an intensive academic element, with modules taught by experienced thought-leaders in the field of sustainability and the food industry. Following this, the focus moves to experiential learning, as participants conduct placements at the headquarters of the world’s leading food companies where they work side-by-side with leading insight and innovation practitioners.

This combination of academic content and work placement enables participants to directly apply the insights gained from DCU Business School coursework to their placement company, with immediate and direct benefit to host companies.

Career Prospects

The MSc Insights & Innovation is ideal for anyone aspiring to be an effective innovator in the agri-food industry.  It directly prepares graduates for roles in innovation leadership, with both the technical and entrepreneurial skill sets required.

Many global companies are choosing to locate their innovation, R&D, and technology centres in Ireland.  This programme helps such companies to build world-class talent in the area of innovation and design thinking for the food, beverage and horticulture industry.

Placements and industry projects are an integral part of the programme and provide participants an opportunity to bridge or translate the theory of innovation and strategy into practice.  Students will learn from host companies, their channel customers and their consumers.  You will foster new and lasting relationships with key stakeholders in the industry.

You will graduate with strong business acumen with an innovative and dynamic mix of skills that will allow you to pursue a career in the agri-food industry. Your knowledge of the food, horticulture and beverage sector environment and the ability to be able to think innovatively and strategically coupled with your exposure to new methods and technologies will ensure you are in high demand by employers.
