Master of Business Innovation - B6027

Business Innovation

Expert master degree

Ever wondered how to successfully innovate?

Do you see business models, processes and policies that need to be reformed or replaced?

Indonesia is a developing country with the world's 10th largest economy, and it will continue to enjoy a demographic dividend until 2030.  This dividend, which is so important to Indonesia's long term prosperity, has been sorely disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Accompanying this disruption are opportunities for policy and enterprise leaders to forge innovative solutions that will enhance social outcomes and generate new sources of value.

The Master of Business Innovation offers frameworks which are drawn from management, marketing, finance and economics to equip you with the skills needed to further Indonesia's growth potential.

By enhancing your leadership skills and fostering innovative thinking from concept to execution, the Master of Business Innovation provides a platform to develop your ability to innovate in real-world situations.
