PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

 

Course overview

This degree provides an ideal study path for people wishing to start their own business or be involved in early-stage start-up companies. Equally, as larger organisations are increasingly valuing people who can innovate and act entrepreneurially from a management perspective, those looking to pursue management careers will gain highly relevant and applicable skills.

Much of the learning takes place not only in the textbook and lectures, but also case discussion, so that students can see first-hand how business works in China and can develop an understanding of how to engage effectively with international partners and clients.

Additionally, the programme provides a strong base from which to undertake postgraduate research study into the area of entrepreneurship.

Special features

Students will gain hands-on experience by formulating and developing a business idea into a real business plan. At the same time, the Entrepreneurial Project will provide the opportunity to be embedded in a company where students can develop innovative skills. These activities will engage students face-to-face with entrepreneurs in practice and expose students to real-world business problem-solving.

This unique and highly innovative Masters degree programme gives a taste of what it is like to run your own business and will appeal equally to aspiring entrepreneurs and those seeking leadership positions within larger organisations.
