Every business needs strong innovative entrepreneurs and leaders, be it the service, entertainment, health, financial or technology industry. According to research (e.g. by INSEAD) many companies, even highly innovative ones are still struggling to generate useful new ideas (continuously) and converting these ideas into viable products and services that add value. The need for graduates who can generate ideas and implement them -i.e. IBIS graduates- is high, on a global scale.
The graduate of the International Business Innovation Studies programme is equipped to become the new business innovation executive that contemporary society needs: a truly innovative entrepreneur with well-developed discovery skills and profound 'traditional' business knowledge. Not only does the IBIS graduate come up with big and out-of-the-ordinary ideas as well as smaller, incremental, meaningful changes, s/he is also capable of following up on these ideas and turns them into (financially) successful reality on an international scale. S/he is a broad thinker (rather than extremely specialised) with design intelligence, who is able to make sense of the large amounts of data and content that is being created around the globe.
As a (junior) director of innovation you are a master of 'disruption'; you can define necessary changes, bring these changes about and steer your company (whether self-employed or not) to a durable and prosperous future. Equipped with strongly developed analytical skills and up-to-date insight in developments, you deal with and find solutions to problems and issues that haven't been encountered before.
The International Business Innovation Studies graduate is an idea fuser: "[a person with] the ability to pull two unlike things together to create a beautiful third" (Fryer, 2012), and a knowmad: "nomadic knowledge and innovation worker --a creative, imaginative, and innovative person who can work with almost anybody, anytime, and anywhere" (Moravec, 2012).
