Many organisations struggle with societal challenges such as sustainability, health, energy, and IT security. Addressing these challenges requires knowledge in the field of natural or computer sciences but also from other disciplines, such as policy, management and innovation. Solutions for such challenges require scientists with an analytical background as well as a business and societal understanding. This Master’s specialisation will provide you with expertise in a societal challenge and the ability to speak the language of policy and business.



Master's in Science, Management and Innovation: something for you?

What will you learn?
This specialisation will take you out of the lab and place you right in the heart of society. After the first year in which you broaden your knowledge in your scientific field, you’ll learn the skills you can use to make a direct contribution to society. This contribution can range from the creation of policies that tackle social issues to project development or market research.
