The minor in Industrial value creation and management (IVCM) provides skills to career paths in management consulting, industrial sales, project, service and product management.

After reaching the end of a learning path of four courses you will understand how value is created and captured and have the skills to actively manage value increasing initiatives.

The two first courses of the learning path are on the intermediate level which are followed by two courses on the advanced level.

The courses in this minor are put into practise in co-operation with Åbo Akademi, Aalto University, Tampere University and University of Oulu.

The minor consist of the following courses:

  • Industrial value creation: This course will give you knowledge on how value is created in and by a firm.
  • Project management: The next course, Project management, is based on the theoretical foundations closer to the practical management of projects.
  • Advanced project-based management: In this course, you will get a more in depth view of specific areas of project management.
  • Business models and ecosystems: After you master value creation and the harvesting of this value in specific projects in the firm, the course Business models and ecosystems challenges you to think about the industrial value creation from a wider perspective.
