MIM-Certified Professional Intellectual Property Manager Programme

The advent of globalisation and the k-economy has changed the business playing field, bringing with it a new set of rules and perspectives. In the Old Economy, assets were traditionally defined as something tangible like inventory, plant and machinery or property. However, the New Economy has changed the definition of assets. Assets no longer have to be tangibles. In fact, a review of the performance of Fortune 100 companies show that tangible assets make up a small percentage of their value.
