Uncover the secrets of thinking like an entrepreneur to create value for stakeholders and society across a variety of business settings. What does it really mean to think entrepreneurially? The entrepreneurial process isn’t only for start-ups, it’s a comprehensive mindset that will teach you to identify, assess, shape, and act on opportunities in a variety of contexts, settings and organisations. The ability to ‘think like an entrepreneur’ and ‘act like an innovator’ are critical skills for success across industries and are proven tools to help distinguish you in the workplace and to accelerate your career.

An entrepreneur is not the one who owns a business but the one who makes ideas and innovation happen. The School of Business and Innovation is founded on the idea of encouraging business mentality, which creates value for investors, stakeholders and society across a wide variety of businesses. It is about seeing opportunities, exploiting them to your advantage and creating value for yourself and others. These are not qualities that entrepreneurs develop by just setting up an organisation. An entrepreneurial mindset is something that can be developed through skills training and self-awareness. The courses in the School of Business and Innovation will do just that for you.
