Master HES-SO in Integrated Innovation for Product & Business Development (Master Innokick)

The Innokick Master programme allows students to acquire the necessary interdisciplinary skills to develop innovative products and services. It also enables them to develop business opportunities to meet actual business needs while remaining user-oriented. The objective is thus to respond to the market demand for innovative managers, agile and active in their professional environment, creative in their proposals and able to answer technological and social challenges.

This interdisciplinary training, unique in Switzerland, brings together students from three areas, namely Art & Design, Business, Management & Services and Engineering & Architecture.

The programme closely combines academic education with practical training in the framework of actual projects initiated by SMEs/SMIs and start-ups *. It also relies on strategic partnerships with various innovation support actors and several companies in Switzerland.

The Innokick Master not only opens new job prospects for students in the various vocational fields, but also gives them privileged access to selected tools in order to develop their professional ambitions and to anticipate changes in labour market demand.
