The curriculum for the Technology and Innovation Management Professional Master's Degree Program is built around courses that have been grouped into categories and systematically structured so that students can learn according to their level of learning and achievement.
Our goal is to produce specialists in innovation who create new social and economic values based on a deep understanding of science, technology, and socioeconomic systems. In order to achieve this, we have designed a comprehensive curriculum that fosters business people who create groundbreaking knowledge in technology and business management, and strategically design, plan, and execute new businesses and projects. It also cultivates innovators who work towards a prosperous society by fueling the creation of scientific and technological knowledge and incorporating this new knowledge into society and industry. The curriculum includes courses that deal with product and service design, and those that examine methodologies used to analyze and think, such as mathematical and information analysis and knowledge engineering. Specialized knowledge of technology management, such as management of intellectual property and standardization, and advanced knowledge of industry sectors and technologies, such as energy, biotechnology, and information, are also covered. Along with this, practical abilities to realize innovation are developed through practicums where students engage in discussions with business managers, policymakers, and experts at the forefront of business management, science, and technology, and propose projects and policies built on advanced technologies. Furthermore, through broad research activities where issues are deeply investigated and problems are solved, students form the ability to make decisions on their own using logic based on facts, and learn to take the lead to overcome difficulties and make breakthroughs.
