Innovation and Applied Entrepreneurship

The course is team based and uses a 'learning by doing' approach. In training sessions, students will be supported by an experienced team coach. As well as undertaking projects based on 'wicked problems' (complex issues requiring input from different perspectives and backgrounds), students will have opportunities to bring their own startup ideas and benefit from the input of other team members. Masterclasses are highly interactive and are led by academic and industry experts, whilst online delivery of some modules allows students to engage with individual study units as and when they are most relevant. Group working is a key element and students will have plenty of opportunity to practise and develop their team working capabilities. The opportunities to share learning across multi-disciplinary teams will also help students to learn more, and at a faster rate.
