If you are interested in working entrepreneurially, whether that is in a large multinational, your own business, or as a business consultant or analyst, this course is designed for you.

You will take our cutting-edge Ingenuity module where you will consider how to solve problems by thinking differently, as well as taking modules in leading entrepreneurial growth, launching new ventures and entrepreneurial creativity.
