For universities wanting a more collaborative and coordinated approach to innovation, here is an example worth benchmarking.
Virginia Commonwealth University is offering the first of its kind graduate program in product innovation. The Master of Product Innovation program is a blend of innovation, business, design, and technology courses. “We are very excited to offer this unique program,” says Dr. Kenneth Kahn who leads the initiative. “Students enrolling in this program will receive a very enthralling educational experience that when completed will provide graduates with clearer purpose and ability to deliver on product innovation.”
