Entry requirements

Usually, we require a second-class honours degree in any subject area from a UK university, or a non-UK equivalent. We will also consider a professional or other qualification obtained by written examinations, which must be approved by the College.

Relevant experience, supporting statements and references may be taken into consideration, especially in the case of non-standard applications.

Course content

Technological change and the digital economy raise new economic and managerial challenges for businesses and public and private sector organisations. Our Postgraduate Certificate in Business Innovation is ideal if you wish to acquire advanced, practical knowledge of these challenges and the best ways of approaching and tackling them.

We will consider the theoretical foundations of managing business innovation, but we will also look at real-life applications of this theory, the realities of contemporary professional practice, and how you can encourage, nurture and manage innovation. This combination of practical insight and analysis of real-world issues will enhance your career development and equip you for a range of management roles.

This programme will give you a deep understanding of the importance of innovation for rethinking a range of ideas, issues and structures within management, including business strategy, corporate assets, intellectual property rights, institutions, organisations and firms, entrepreneurship, and globalisation in a changing world. You will develop topical, focused and practical insights into the fundamentals of business innovation, including the technological aspects and associated business models and working patterns.

If you wish to continue with your studies, you will be automatically accepted on to our MSc Business Innovation with Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management, or MSc Business Innovation with E-business.
