The Master's degree program of Leadership in Service Innovation is a cutting-edge business degree, focused on organizational leadership, innovation, and customer experience.
In a rapidly changing business environment where customer experience, service excellence and innovation are what drive competitiveness, the Master of Leadership in Service Innovation prepares leaders to succeed by teaching them how to lead organizations that deliver exceptional customer experiences.
The University of Queensland Master's degree program takes a cross-disciplinary approach to address two key challenges that affect businesses, nonprofit organizations, and even the public sector. The first challenge is the move from a product-based to a service and experience-based economy, which demands that leaders have a strong background in customer experience, value co-creation, and change management.
The second challenge is the increasing importance of embedding a culture of continuous innovation in any organization.
The program blends research and best practices in business leadership, innovation, service science, management, and experience design. It helps students develop the transformational mindset and leadership skills needed to succeed in the modern economy.
The Master of Leadership in Service Innovation takes students on a journey from the economic changes that led to today’s experience-based value model, through all foundational aspects to ensure they are prepared for the future and ready to maximize organizational resilience and adaptability to change.
