In ever more competitive global markets, organisations that depend solely upon re-investing profits and loan finance will be condemned to slow growth.
Our faculty members use a variety of teaching methods including: lectures and seminars, case studies, entrepreneurship and business scenarios, with distinguished visiting speakers and entrepreneurs. The Entrepreneurship Project is a live case study, where students undertake a consultancy intervention with local firms. You will also work with leading academics and industry experts in the Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship and the ICMA Centre.
