Innovation

Innovation, as a field of study, is a multidisciplinary one. Schools that offer a program of innovation courses usually present topics related to entrepreneurship, proposal writing, business fundamentals, and intellectual law. Studied together, these areas of knowledge provide students with the leadership skills needed to take on new business challenges and make a real impact on society. Graduates of innovation courses usually embark on exciting new career paths, developing business models and proposals for new ventures.

Programs of study that include innovation courses typically start with an introduction to entrepreneurship, along with the fundamentals of marketing, finance, and business law. As students progress through the program, they often have the chance to gain valuable experience through workshops, internships, and partnerships with local companies. These opportunities enable students to not only refine their communication and team-building skills, but also work with real-world startup companies where they can develop a valuable network of contacts.

Although not all schools offer a series of innovation courses, this emerging field has become popular enough that programs can be found in countries all over the world. Whether you are just starting out in the business world, or are a seasoned professional seeking to start up a new business venture, innovation courses can help you achieve your goals.

Never has there been a better time and a more urgent need to create a more resilient and participatory future by turning our attention to alternative economic paradigms. If you feel stuck or uncertain about what you can do and yearn to open the door to these new possibilities then our e-learning programme is for you. Many know that our current economic system is no longer sustainable, yet few are aware of the alternatives? Our aim is to give you a better understanding of those alternatives and the true meaning of economy and wealth. Participants will learn about existing systems and tools that are useful, and redesign those that have proven dysfunctional based on already tested alternatives. To do nothing is to accept that but a handful of economists and political leaders still believe the answer to our problems is more economic growth – more production, more consumption, more highways, more buildings, more logging, more fishing, etc., ad infinitum. By continuing to collectively pay for this dysfunctional system through our taxes, we are all becoming accomplices in an environmental despoliation and ever-increasing debt serfdom as we remain addicted to growth and the way money is created. "The Third Industrial Revolution will also bring with it a more democratic economy. The distributed nature of renewable energies necessitates collaborative rather than hierarchical command and control mechanisms. This new lateral energy regime establishes the organizational model for the countless economic activities that multiply from it. A more distributed and collaborative industrial revolution, in...
