Take control of your future and enjoy the greater freedom and flexibility that developing your own business can bring. We will feed your entrepreneurial spirit and develop your management skills so you can create, establish and lead your own venture. We will also give you the knowledge and confidence to implement new strategies within an established company to drive change, encourage innovation and help the business flourish.

As well as gaining a broad overview of business, you will also explore your individual management style and develop critical-thinking patterns and problem solving and decision-making techniques to share and reflect upon with your peers. Working closely with industry professionals, you will be encouraged to experiment with new ideas and you will learn to identify opportunities and risks in order to develop a viable business venture or project.

Studying professional interactions, you will learn that strong communication and relationship development skills coupled with a solid emotional intelligence base are key to managing and sustaining complex business partnerships.

You will learn from a highly skilled and research-active teaching team who are experts in enterprise, innovation, entrepreneurship, marketing and management. You will also work with a professional mentor - a business practitioner who can provide practical support and advice during your period of study.

With guidance from your mentor, you will have the opportunity to work on a real-life enterprise or start-up project and implement solutions, make decisions and manage the process from start to finish.

In addition, you will have access to our Enterprise & Innovation Academy, who will offer information, advice and guidance to give you the best possible grounding when taking your next step into a new business venture.

We are dedicated to supporting your professional development - that's why we offer a guest lecture programme. Past speakers include the Director General for the National Museum of the Royal Navy, the Group Head of Organisational Effectiveness for BP, the Deputy Agent for the Bank of England and the Chair of Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.
