Master of Business Administration-Corporate Innovation Concentration

An MBA in corporate innovation is a graduate program that balances the fundamental business administration approach with innovative and entrepreneurial concepts. In this kind of degree track, graduate students may learn important techniques that may later be used in managing, operating, and running businesses. Innovation is an idea that refers to a new way of doing something. This might refer to something as complicated and involved as implementing a new software or server system, or it might be something as simple as utilizing a more efficient meeting agenda.

Private, public, and government organizations alike may need trained innovators to keep their companies and nonprofits in prime working condition. Charities, research funds, and other nonprofit organizations might hire an MBA grad with concentration in corporate innovation to oversee a particular project or event. Some graduates use this kind of MBA program as a launch pad to begin their own careers in business. Some may collaborate with small business owners on a new venture, and others may embark upon opening their own. Even corporate companies need innovators to keep them ahead of the game. Marketing, sales, and even budgeting managers and directors may all use some form of innovative techniques set in their daily responsibilities.
