This depends on your ambition and if you take courses sequentially or in parallel. The Value Creation through Innovation Specialization comprises 5 courses. If taken in sequence the courses take about 30 weeks to complete, but you should be able to decrease this to about 15 weeks if running courses in parallel.
What background knowledge is necessary?
No specific background knowledge is required. However, a general knowledge regarding technology and/or business is helpful. The courses are equivalent to courses given on a university Bachelor or Master level.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
The four first courses should be completed prior to taking the capstone course. The order of the first four courses is up to you. If courses are taken in sequence, then we recommend the order as illustrated.
In general no. However, this Specialization is in some cases part of Masters Programs within the EIT Digital cooperation including a number of European technical universities. For more information see https://masterschool.eitdigital.eu/.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Specialization?
In general you will be able to assess, prepare for and capitalize of new business opportunities arising for the introduction of new technologies. We usually describe this as that you will be able to draw the map of what the future business landscape will look like, decide on a destination on that map and learn how to get to a desired destination. This includes understanding the impact of new technologies and how it can transform existing markets and industries, as well as creating new, general innovation and entrepreneurship tools, methods and skills (design thinking, business modeling, funding etc.) as well as marketing strategy. These are essential skills when working with tech driven transformation within an existing organization or when creating a new venture based on a new emerging technology.
