Rimantas Stašys

Abstract

In 2013 a new postgraduate study programme was created. Since the study programme has been running for a year now, a decision to evaluate the quality of the study programme. Objective of the Study: to evaluate the quality of study programme and, having analysed the aims and the results of the postgraduate study programme, to determine the aspects that would enhance the preparation of innovation managers. A quantitative study is the basis of this empirical study: a structured written survey. Study programmes accurately match the main needs of students and the results are important and relevant for the preparation of innovation managers. The quality of the study programme can be and needs to be improved: by actively using case analyses, by integrating workers of innovation companies into the curriculum of the study programme, by changing the ratio between lecture time and practicum time, by creating specific methodical guidelines for the preparation of a final project in this study programme.
