Course details

Innovation Leadership course structure & details

After completing your foundational courses as part of your MBA or EMBA program, you’ll start your Innovation Leadership specialty stream.

The stream includes 3 courses: Developing Innovation Skills, Leading Innovation in Organization, and Innovation for Scalable Growth. These courses will follow a similar format as the foundational courses – they’ll include one virtual class (vClass) a week, taking place between Monday and Thursday, typically lasting 1.5 – 2 hours.

The courses are designed to offer practical applications of theoretical knowledge, so you’ll know how to apply your skills to real-world scenarios.
