Why attend Corporate Innovation?:

Innovation is imperative in the fast-paced landscape of contemporary business. Forward-thinking managers know that a strategy for innovation must become an integral part of an organization’s primary operation.

In today’s dynamic and ever-changing economic climate, innovation is less of a choice and more of a business imperative. Similar to entrepreneurship, innovation requires a context of engagement and interconnection between people, stakeholders, and ecosystems in order to flourish — in other words, an innovation ecosystem. This executive program explores MIT’s research on the science of innovation ecosystems, offering you the tools and frameworks necessary to foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in your organization.

Based on our Innovation Ecosystems: A New Approach to Accelerating Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship course, this online executive program offers a unique framework (iEcosystem) designed by MIT faculty to help organizations align internal and external processes, leverage key stakeholders, and innovate successfully to overcome business challenges. The online program offers those who would previously be limited in accessing the on-campus course the opportunity to engage with a portion of content in a flexible and personalized way.

Over the course of six weeks, you’ll gain access to this framework along with a range of cutting-edge concepts and tools, empowering you to foster a culture of sustainable innovation in your organization.
