It is crucial for the success of companies to react quickly to changing conditions and actively shape social change. Innovative organizations can meet customer requirements, achieve a competitive advantage in the market and contribute to the promotion of sustainable development. Future-oriented companies therefore integrate innovation management as an integral part of their strategic planning.

Our further training in innovation management has a modular structure. This means that the modules can be completed individually or in combination within a certain time frame - up to the Certified Innovation Expert level. You also have the opportunity to work on a company-specific project under the supervision of our innovation experts at the university.

Short programs of the Innovation Business School

The university courses at Department of Innovation Management teach key aspects of innovation management and aim to open up new perspectives for participants. The focus ranges from the effective generation of ideas to the (further) development of business models, the analysis of trends and market needs, agile management styles and the creation of prototypes and digital mock-ups as part of a design sprint.

Certificate course at the Innovation Business School

The Innovation Business School's certificate course is the ideal further training course for anyone who wants to acquire sound and practice-oriented knowledge in innovation management without having to complete a degree. The course is designed to be flexible and therefore easily compatible with working life. Upon completion of the program and certification as an Innovation Expert, participants have the necessary skills to independently implement what they have learned in innovation projects.

Success stories

Voices & moods on further training

As a business economist and marketing specialist, the training at IBS was perfect for building up my personal know-how and expanding my knowledge. The course offered me a compact but in-depth learning environment. The flexibility to book the modules according to my personal schedule was particularly valuable to me. I was also impressed by the scientifically sound approach, which is both practical and directly applicable in professional life. I give it 5 stars and a clear recommendation. As soon as there are more modules, I will definitely be back.

Thanks to the Certified Innovation Expert training and the Innovation Business School program, we were able to expand our expertise in innovation management and put theory into practice straight away. We have redeveloped our innovation management process and were able to draw on the fresh know-how. For us, the practical relevance and the exchange between the participants were very important and therefore provided the greatest added value. The Business Modeling and Innovation Leadership modules were particularly tangible.
