This course addresses the challenge of innovation from a transversal strategic perspective that goes beyond the product approach. We will focus on updating the key theoretical frameworks in competitive strategy applied to disruptive environments, analysing the ways in which companies approach disruption. On the other hand, we will approach technological innovation, reviewing key enabling technologies and their transformational capacity in terms of business models.

This module aims to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to manage all aspects of innovation, in any type of company or organization, as a platform to achieve growth based on differential and sustainable competitive advantages that allow them not only to adapt to the trends of the new global economy, but also to lead and even influence them.

Over time, consumer habits and needs have continued to evolve. As a result, the strategy and objectives of companies must adapt to said transformations. The COVID pandemic accelerated the pace and the need to adapt to an unstable and syncopated environment and context, increasing the challenges faced by companies, which must now also address environmental issues. These challenges imply new approaches in relation to the development of formulas for new proposals for products, services and even business models.

The point of this module is to help the student learn the different ways to Process Innovation, the methodologies that contribute to achieve said improvement and the latest trends in this area. At a time when the speed of external change is very high, organizations are obliged to promote a speed of internal change at least equal to the external if they don’t want to lag behind their competitors. In this context, the area of processes is essential to achieve the desired innovation.

Professor: Marta Grañó, Associate at Huete&Co.

2. Entrepreneurship

Companies are facing a paradigm shift: globalization, new technologies, the thrust of emerging economies and new social trends are changing the competitive environment. In response, organizations are forced to adapt if they want to survive, but in order to do so, change is necessary. In this context, topics such as new economic paradigms, leadership in the context of change and new forms of organization, among others, will be discussed.

Professor: Marcelo de Arregui, Partner at CEO Solutions.

Business models are one of the areas where more innovation is taking place, mainly due to the latest technological advances. New business models driven by new organizations are changing the way people compete in many industries, which is why this module aims to help students see the connections between the business model and corporate strategy, all through the prism of innovation. You will also put into practice tools for analysing and building business models.

The entrepreneurial spirit must nowadays be in the DNA of any company if it wishes to grow, diversify and expand. Large companies have developed costly innovation programs to boost those invisible entrepreneurs that will help them get out of the comfort zone and aim for more. Throughout this module, students will delve into topics such as the structure of a Business Plan, the financing process and the profile and competencies of the entrepreneur, among others.

The Product Manager (PM) is one of the key roles in a technology company, since its function is much more complex and transversal than that of the classic PM. Another key role in technology start-ups is that of the growth teams (also known as Growth Hackers). They are responsible for developing traffic acquisition channels and creating user retention mechanisms to achieve solid growth. That is why one of the topics you will learn throughout this course are the roles of a Product Manager and a Growht team in a start-up, the competencies and skills necessary to perform both roles, the main techniques of managing a technology product and the process of implementing a Growth Hacking strategy, among others.

Exchange with TEC de Monterrey

Taller de intercambio con el TEC de Monterrey en el Global MBA de OBS

In the framework of the Master in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, we offer you the possibility to participate in a virtual exchange at the TEC de Monterrey University. In this exchange, OBS Business School students will be able to take a pre-determined course at TEC de Monterrey, exempting them from taking the equivalent course at OBS Business School. Those students who complete the exchange and pass the course will obtain a Certificate from TEC de Monterrey.

Company visits
During the program, students will have the opportunity to attend synchronous videoconferences with experts in each area. They will share their experiences and best practices in their sector.

Webinars
Most of the training is done asynchronously, which means that this exchange of knowledge is done through a platform that allows sharing written texts without the need for people to be connected at the same time. Additionally, in each of the modules, synchronous sessions or 'webinars' are organized, where all participants are connected at the same time through an application, which allows the exchange of knowledge in 'real time'.

Students taking the Master in Innovation and Entrepreneurship at OBS Business School will have the opportunity to prepare for the following certifications*:

  • ICN Business IT Certification
  • Scrum Certification (Product Owner & Scrum Master)

*The cost of the certifications and the preparatory course are not included in the price of the program.
