ABOUT

Studying Master of Sustainable Business Development and Innovation at Stavanger university in Norway:

Sustainable Business Development and Innovation covers topics related to the creation and evolution of supportive conditions for sustainable businesses with a particular emphasis on the geographical dimension. The topic is rooted in the fields of regional economics, economic geography, and innovation studies.

Core is the understanding of businesses being deeply embedded into their regional and national surroundings that strongly shape their possibilities to be successful. In this sense, regions and nations are seen as systems of interrelated actors whose individual and combined performances are the outcome of processes at different administrative and spatial levels with collaboration, innovation, and entrepreneurship being particularly crucial ones.

Hence, understanding and managing businesses as well as regions implies looking beyond individual firms’ boundaries and considering the roles of local administrations, national authorities, consultancies, and diverse support organizations.

Curriculum:

Semester 1

Semester 1 consists of three courses. One course is unique for the business development and innovation students, while two of the courses are taken by all the first-year students at the UiS Business School.

  • MSB305 Sustainable Business Development and Innovation Introduction (required)

In the conventional view of economics, firms are seen as homogeneous entities that operate in isolation. This course introduces students to how firms interact with and utilize their surroundings. It delivers a fundamental understanding of regional development and inter-organizational networks of production and learning, whereby emphasis is put on modern knowledge-based and evolutionary approaches. That is, the course presents students with the scientific underpinnings of the beyond-the-individual-firm perspective that are at the heart of modern approaches to business development. Drawing on core concepts and insights from the fields of Regional Science and Economic Geography as well as Complex System Theories, students will learn about and discuss the role played by location, networks, and system embeddedness for businesses and their development. The course thereby lays the basis for the subsequent courses: MSB416 BDI: The firm perspective and MSB335 BDI: The policy perspective. Read the full course description for MSB305.

  • MSB102 Business Decisions (required)

A highly interactive course where you will learn exciting business cases from different perspectives, together with students from all the specializations.

  • MSB103 Data Analytics (required)

You learn how to extract useful information from data, as well as the programming skills using a widely popular software R.
