The Master of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MAIE) from BSBI and Concordia University Chicago is designed to help students understand the challenges and opportunities that may arise when embarking on a new business venture or leading a period of change within an organization. The MAIE teaches people the skills necessary to thrive in a fast-paced international environment.
The master’s program is made up of ten core modules designed to equip you with all the skills you will need to lead and grow a business. Some of the core courses include Strategy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Social Media Marketing Communications, and Prototyping / Co-Design Solutions. Each module will increase your understanding of how to introduce the necessary components in your business for it to be successful.
The program also focuses on the needs of innovators who want to successfully commercialize an idea. Students will learn to do this by working on projects that are directly relevant to their work.
Outside of the program, BSBI also offers executive education courses lasting 5 days. The course is aimed at students who want to be leaders and teaches them how to motivate their staff, how to develop an appropriate leadership style, and how to communicate effectively with their team.
