Course content

An entrepreneurial mindset and the ability to think ‘out-of-the-box’ are highly prized by employers and investors alike. Whether you want to develop a new business or re-energise an existing business through innovation and entrepreneurship, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to shape a successful and rewarding future career.

You will learn how to identify and assess opportunities, acquire key resources, and simultaneously manage organisational operations, transition and growth.

We offer the ideal environment for aspiring entrepreneurs, emphasising theoretical rigour and practical experience. You will benefit from academic excellence, broad business networks and cutting-edge models delivered by leading professors. Our innovative modules include design thinking, leadership, and entrepreneurial lab modules, some of which are often presented as workshops.

You will be encouraged to be proactive and to develop practical skills such as presenting and networking. We keep our class sizes small to encourage students to excel at working as a group.

There is a real opportunity to develop a new business idea with support from our enterprise centre and mentoring and advice from our 50+ Entrepreneurs In Residence.

We hold a prestigious small business charter award and are renowned for our knowledge exchange and business engagement activities.
