Course content

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.

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:

Academic English preparation and support

If you require additional support to take your language skills to the required level, you may be able to attend a presessional course at the Centre for English Language Education, which is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK. Students who successfully complete the presessional course to the required level can progress to postgraduate study without retaking IELTS or equivalent.

Specialist business and management courses are available and you could be eligible for a joint offer, which means you will only need to apply for your visa once. Students who enter via the CELE route are exempt from paying the school's £2,000 reservation fee. For more details, please contact us.
