About the programme

Challenge your assumptions and develop a mindset for innovation.

The Oxford Innovation Programme approaches innovation as a tool for handling challenges that cannot yet be predicted. You’ll deconstruct and redefine what innovation means, why it’s essential, and how it can be mobilised within organisations.

With a critical thinking and analytical approach, you’ll explore different ways of navigating innovation and learn how to incorporate it within your organisational design, structure and culture.

Over six weeks, you will be empowered to:

  • Enhance your organisational value by incorporating innovation into the way you work and respond to challenges

  • Analyse various innovation systems, strategies, and methodologies, and apply them within your own context

  • Understand the ethics and governance considerations for innovation

Delivered in partnership with online learning provider, GetSmarter, you will be part of a community learning together through a dedicated Online Campus. 

Programme Director

The programme is led by Marc Ventresca, whose areas of expertise include market and network formation, entrepreneurship, governance, and innovation and technology strategy.

You will also be guided by prominent industry thought-leaders who will share their experience and in-depth subject knowledge.
