An important feature of the program is that it provides not just theory, but the introduction of IP concepts and practices into the business environment. Students will gain knowledge on how to:

One of the main components of the program is the methodology of criteria for assessing the success of innovation. It will help determine which developments are really worth attention and will become commercially successful, and which ones are out of touch with reality. In addition, additional master classes are provided with business trainers – leaders of the innovation market in Ukraine and abroad.

All students, regardless of the form of study, prepare their final work. The diploma project is created as a step-by-step instruction for the introduction of an innovative product into commercial circulation. The benefit is that it can be used in practice in a specific enterprise.
