Employers need innovative leaders like you.
Machine learning and data analytics are redefining the business landscape, changing the way companies interact with customers, and requiring agile approaches to challenges. Leaders who can design creative solutions, reinvent outdated processes, and guide their teams expertly through times of change are already in high demand.
Your D’Amore-McKim Master’s in Innovation degree will position you to potential employers as a knowledgeable practitioner of innovation techniques—and one who distinctly understands the unique challenges of the digital economy. The tools you’ll learn are portable across all industries and companies, and they apply in all functional areas, including research, business development, engineering, information technology, marketing, operations, product management, and brand management.
Also, by securing a corporate sponsor within your organization and developing an innovation plan that can substantially boost revenue or productivity—part of a required project—you can raise your leadership profile and position yourself for career advancement.
