MBA in Innovation Management (Online/Portland Hybrid)

Oregon State University's Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Innovation Management will equip you to start new companies and advance ideas within existing ones; teach you how to conduct the research needed to propel concepts into products and processes; and coach you on how to develop investor-ready business models.

A core element of the innovation management option is the completion of a self-paced, experiential project based on development/analysis of an innovative business or technical concept.

Classes are taught by Oregon State faculty members who have a combination of academic and professional expertise in the field of innovation management. The program is offered by OSU's College of Business and delivered through Oregon State Ecampus.
