Entrepreneurship and innovation play vital roles in knowledge creation and exploitation to generate value and drive sustainable economic, social, technological and organisational development.

The programme is designed to complement research-led and theoretically-informed education, with a clear focus on the development of practical skills and opportunities for the application of knowledge to real-life organisational situations and issues.

The programme is targeted at students with both business and non-business backgrounds to create a vibrant and dynamic environment that will enrich learning through leveraging interdisciplinary knowledge within the cohort.
