Master's Programme (120 credits) in Industrial Management and Innovation, 120 credits

The programme is based on technical know-how; the education is supplemented with theories and models to be able to plan, develop, implement and manage technical innovations linked to strategic and operational targets of an organisation. The student will also learn to understand the importance of research and technological development at societal level.

The programme has a close collaboration with Shanghai International Studies University (SISU), which means that students of the programme can replace one 7.5 credit course in Halmstad with a course at SISU.
