Business Innovation (ENG) full-time

The world needs strong, innovative entrepreneurs and leaders.

After the programme Business Innovation

Our alumni chose very different paths - some became entrepreneurs, others work as strategists in design firms or as innovation consultants for international organisations. Many of our alumni are interested in solving societal & environmental issues, which is why they work with NGOs or started their own social impact ventures. Quite a few also choose to continue their education and pursue a Masters.

“Currently I work as a Creative Strategist, but I do not see this as my career. It is something I am trying out and am still to decide what will be my next steps. I think an important thing BI taught me was to stay curious and explore, to try out things and to reflect. I am now aware that the job I have now is not set for the rest of my life. I have the confidence to make a 180° change. BI helped me to think more holistically, and to be pickier about the work I do. I want to work with a purpose, to contribute to something I believe in, to practise my passion, and not just work for money.”
