A wide range of organisations will be selected as part of the study tour  in order to develop comprehensive knowledge about 'intrapreneurship' and the processes by which innovative ideas are turned into commercial advantage. Innovation can occur in products/services, processes and systems, business models, or in business operations. Hence, the unit focuses on the innovation process itself, management strategies that foster innovation, and how innovation models and theory can be applied to each of these areas, resulting in sustainable competitive advantage. As part of the study tour students will have the opportunity to learn from the leaders in the area of innovation and also to expand their own networks in order to continue to develop their own innovation skills in future.
