F.A.Q.

The program trains founders who are ready to start their own business, not product managers. If desired, graduates can become corporate intrapreneurs and develop products within another business. Lectures are given by acting entrepreneurs: not experts from the field, not consultants, not representatives of development institutions, but businessmen ready to share their experience.
Master's program graduates are the current owners of a growing IT business with all the commitments and benefits of an entrepreneurial career. Graduates can get a job in a company, for example, as a product owner, if they see fit, but their main motivation and ambition lie in building and developing their own IT business.
The educational program is practice-oriented, which is reflected in the philosophy of professors selection. Business courses will be taught by existing entrepreneurs. Technical courses will be taught by Innopolis University faculty and industry representatives.
