Overview

Are you 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 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.

Your new knowledge is then deployed through a 'live' consultancy project with a fast-growing, local business where you will develop a report to show how the business can exploit new market opportunities, which is one of the things our students most like about the course.

Our approach is not to tell people how to become entrepreneurs, but to really engage them in practice so they develop their own entrepreneurial capabilities. You will cover core subjects in creativity, launching new ventures, and entrepreneurship in context, along with leading entrepreneurial growth and the unique ingenuity project. You will also have a wide variety of options to tailor the course to your career aspirations.

Cross-disciplinary entrepreneurship courses are also available:
