In this module, you are introduced to entrepreneurship and provided with a comprehensive understanding of key concepts and relevant debates into contemporary entrepreneurial theory and practice.
Entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial action is examined from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective in a range of organisational contexts (i.e. start-ups, small business, corporate ventures and social enterprises) and domains (e.g. digital, creative, med-tech and life sciences fields).
The role of governments in developing entrepreneurial ecosystems that support economic, social and sustainable development and growth is also discussed. Overall, the module will expose you to a set of theories, methodologies and tools to start exploring entrepreneurship practices.
