“I see excitement from people involved in (Innovation Engineering). You hear them talking about projects we’re not working on, saying, ‘Hey, I was thinking about this the other weekend. It would be really neat if we could…’ It’s getting excitement within the organization – we see that we’re going somewhere.”

Why THIS Program IS different
Unlike other business programs that are based on a few personal experiences or third-person research – this program is grounded in front-lines innovation work and hard data from the world’s largest database (25,000+) on what drives success and failure. The data is so reliable that the curriculum, called Innovation Engineering, is recognized as a new field of academic study with undergraduate and graduate degrees offered at colleges and universities.
World leaders in business and innovation who’ve used these methods include Walt Disney, Nike, Pepsi-Cola, American Express, Procter & Gamble, US Department of Commerce, and thousands of others.
This program is brought to you by the Innovation Engineering Institute – a partnership between the Eureka! Ranch and the University of Maine.
