In positioning Singapore for the future, the Budget 2018 speech highlighted the emergence of new technologies as a source for major shift in the coming decade that will reshape our economy as well as jobs. It is noted that businesses will increasingly compete not on physical assets, but on intangible assets, which includes intellectual property (IP). This has been reiterated in the Budget 2019 speech. It is also aligned with earlier recommendations by the Committee on the Future Economy (CFE), which calls for strengthening the IP ecosystem to support innovation and technology adoption, and our national capabilities to commercialise IP as well as to grow the community of IP and commercialisation experts.
In today’s knowledge-based economy, where goods and services may no longer be tangible at all, an understanding of IP will be essential to all businesses. The Graduate Diploma in Intellectual Property and Innovation Management with specialisation in IP Management (GDIPIMM) programme aims to prepare professionals, managers and executives to gain knowledge in IP to appreciate how intangible assets can be a valuable tool for commercial success, acquire IP skills to value-add to their domain specialisations in preparing for the future economy, and develop IP and innovation capabilities that are portable across industries.
The GDIPIMM programme is the first and only graduate diploma programme in IP and innovation management offered in Singapore. Don't miss this unique learning opportunity – apply today and be part of a specialised group of professionals with the IP management skills to be able to work with innovation and leverage on IP to maximise business growth and shape Singapore's future economy.
