Entrepreneurial thinking and actions are the driving force for starting up companies and innovating in companies. This is the goal of the Management by Innovation degree program.
Through the systemic perspective on innovation, students learn about the challenges and opportunities of innovation and can build on this to develop holistic solutions. In addition, it is important to take initiative, initiate innovative concepts and make the final strategic decisions. To do this, it is necessary to know and understand the system and the actors and trends. Georg Wagner from Spirit Design teaches students in the Innovation & Society course about embedding innovations in systems across society.
Climate change, income inequality and social injustice are just three of the major problems of our time. Companies and their innovations play an important role in solving some of these big problems. However, this requires a broader and, above all, systemic understanding of innovation that goes beyond purely technological or user-centered innovations. The Innovation and Society course creates the basis for a systemic understanding of innovation. The aim is to create responsible innovation, i.e. innovations that create positive benefits for companies, society and the environment.
