Object – Purpose

Skills directly related to innovation include specialized knowledge and cognitive skills, the so-called ‘soft skills’, such as social, emotional and behavioral skills, as well as special skills associated with entrepreneurship and leadership. Although some of these skills are cultivated from an early age through the formal curriculum in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), others must be acquired through other forms of formal education. The growing recognition of the importance of these broader skills has led many OECD countries to adjust their education systems in order to equip young people with the skills required to meet the challenges of innovation in the workplace and in society at large.

In this context, the MSc “Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship” aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of participants to take advantage of unexplored opportunities and innovate in an existing organization, in a family business or in their own business venture as aspiring entrepreneurs. This is an innovative programme by Greek and international standards, designed according to best practices of similar programmes offered abroad, and including attracting topics for the contemporary labour market, such as Innovation Management, New Venture Creation, Digital Transformation, Design Thinking, etc.

If there is no certification or recognition body in the country concerned, a certificate from the relevant Ministry or Embassy of Greece is required, confirming that the certificates issued by the above bodies to third parties for whom English is not a native language are accepted in public services of that country as valid evidence of English at the appropriate level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The competent regulatory authority for Great Britain is the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).

General notes:

  • Advanced level foreign language certificates also prove knowledge of a lower (required) level of the foreign language.
  • Foreign Language Teaching Certification does not prove the competence in a foreign language. In order to prove their competence in the foreign language, candidates who hold the relevant certification must provide the foreign language certificates as provided for in this Annex where applicable
  • All foreign language degrees must be accompanied by their official translation into the Greek language, except the above English language proficiency certificates, which are accepted without requiring any translation and validation.
