The launch event will feature industry keynote speakers as well as addresses from the Warden of Goldsmiths, Patrick Loughrey, and Head of the IMS, Professor Frank Bond.
The IMS will offer four MSc programmes designed to equip students with the skills, knowledge and creativity to develop talent and potential in management, innovation and leadership.
The four programmes offered are MSc in Leadership and Talent Management, MSc in Management of Innovation, MSc in Digital Entrepreneurship and MSc in Occupational Psychology.
The IMS is the result of a unique interdisciplinary collaboration, drawing on the teaching of diverse yet complementary subjects to provide an influential qualification to ensure graduates adapt to, and stand out in, an increasingly competitive economy.
Strong cross-sector industry links and guidance from leading academics in subjects ranging from psychology, design and computing will ensure students graduate with an MSc qualification firmly rooted in cutting-edge theory, research, and practice.
Professor Bond said: “We’ve known for years that there is a demand for people who can lead innovation, and who can attract, manage, and retain leaders; we provide the knowledge, understanding and skills to help graduates get the job that will allow them to begin to show others their leadership skills.
“Likewise, for a budding digital entrepreneur who wants to embark on their own venture, we can teach them how to succeed. In these difficult times there is a need for leadership and entrepreneurial skills; our research-active staff have the experience and applied skills to help others to develop theirs.”
