This programme provides you with the strong interdisciplinary grounding and key practical skills needed to empower you to become an effective entrepreneur and innovator.

It combines cutting-edge theory with applied practical experience, including entrepreneur mentoring and shadowing, business plan competitions, global case study competitions, inspiring masterclasses and a variety of entrepreneurial challenges. The programme offers access to broad business networks thanks to the Entrepreneurs in Residence programme and close collaborations with the Lancaster University Enterprise Centre.

Due to our academic excellence and emphasis on practice, this is the perfect programme if you have the potential to succeed in starting a new business, becoming an ‘intrapreneur’ and innovator, leading a family business to the next level, or, more broadly, becoming an agent of innovation and change.
