Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Practice

This programme, through its strong focus on the practical application of theory, equips business and non-business graduates with the knowledge and skills they will need to be more innovative and enterprising in their future careers. The programme emphasises theoretical rigour and practical learning. It benefits from the academic excellence and broad business networks provided by the School's Department of Entrepreneurship, Strategy and Innovation. Several modules draw on the entrepreneurs in residence programme. The programme is designed for students who want to start their own business, work as an 'intrapreneur' and innovator in an existing company, take over a family business, or work in entrepreneurship and innovation-related fields (e.g. consulting, public support programmes).
