Entrepreneurship and innovation management are essential for growth strategies in a world faced by technological disruption. This course will prepare you for these challenges and opportunities – whether in a large organisation, emerging-growth company or start-up.

You can also tailor your learning through a choice of modules and final project, while benefitting from mentoring expertise to help you fulfil your career aspirations.

We are ranked in the top 10 for business and economics in the United Kingdom by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020.

This course is designed to give you both practical and academic experience.

  • Entrepreneurship theory
  • Product-market research based on Lean Start-up
  • Business modelling & scaling
