The course includes the first year at the H-FARM Campus and the second at the UE Innovation Hub of Potsdam, which is on the grounds of the SAP Think Campus, one of the most important technology centres in the Berlin metropolitan area. The third year is dedicated to the internship, an important opportunity for each student to work on a real project designed on his skills and targets together with H-FARM College, University of Europe and the companies involved to put into practice the knowledge acquired and the skills developed during the course.
The Master of Arts in Innovation Design Management is among the most cutting-edge management programs today. It is aimed at those who want to specialize in a field becoming increasingly important for companies looking to create an organizational culture of innovation and change. The program has a two-year duration, the first at H-FARM Campus and the second at the UE Innovation Hub in Potsdam. Graduates develop strong skills in interdisciplinarity, innovation and creative problem solving and work, for example, in corporate strategy, consulting and customer experience design.
