This programme builds on the strengths of our Design Innovation programmes bringing the added dimension of supporting students to develop the skills required to take their idea from drawing board to marketplace. Through a series of individual and group projects, students analyse and evaluate entrepreneurial behaviour and look at the contribution of this action to the success of new product ideas. The programme opens up what shapes the entrepreneur and how entrepreneurial behaviour and skills can influence the design process.
