Highly innovative in both design and delivery, our course provides a robust grounding in entrepreneurial management at postgraduate level. You’ll develop a set of special abilities and skills which you can use throughout your working life, whether working for other organisations or for yourself.
Alongside traditional teaching methods, you’ll benefit from entrepreneur-led sessions. Our Entrepreneur in Residence network means that a successful entrepreneur will mentor you throughout your studies, helping you to channel your natural abilities and turn them into something palpable.

You’ll add value to your host organisation while boosting your employability and confidence in establishing your own ventures.
