Course content

This MSc will equip you with the fundamental knowledge and skills required for managing innovative product and brand or policy development, service delivery, or integration of emerging technologies in fast-paced industries.


The management of innovation is the critical element ensuring successful new products and services are encouraged, survive, and flourish.

Every successful company from technologists like Google, Apple, and Spotify to think tanks and agencies like Ogilvy, Unruly Media or Mindshare, media like Monocle, BBC, and Wall Street Journal, and even movements like Bitcoin and Occupy understand the need for innovation and creativity.

Another common characteristic of these organisations is that senior executives or leaders from all of them have shared and discussed innovation challenges and opportunities with students on this programme. And recent speakers in our Innovation Case Studies series have included fashion designer Paul Smith, 'city super woman' Nicola Horlick, and editor of Monocle Tyler Brûlé.

Goldsmiths graduates have recently captured Academy Awards, Baftas, and Golden Globes (Steve McQueen, 12 Years a Slave), the Mercury Prize (James Blake) and the Turner Prize (Laure Prouvost). We have a long history of demonstrating innovation and our students have the unique opportunity of developing interdisiciplinary practical and theoretical management capabilities in this bustling creative and entrepreneurial environment.

Graduates of the programme will be capable of managing projects full of change, transformation, and innovation in any size of organisation – from start-ups to non-profits and Fortune 500 companies. Senior level industry guest speakers and analysts feature on several of the modules on the programme.
