DEVELOPING ENTREPRENEURIAL POTENTIAL

 

A new course aimed at innovative and creative business people is to be launched at the University of Lincoln next year.

 

An MSc in Entrepreneurship will be launched in Lincoln and Hull in February 2002 for those looking to set up their own business or those wishing to manage and promote existing enterprises more effectively.

 

The course consists of units such as entrepreneurship, financing the new enterprise, marketing and starting a venture.

 

“Entrepreneurs are innovative people who thrive on a challenge and want to shape their own destinies,” commented Gerard McElwee, Head of the Department of Corporate Strategy at the university.

 

“The course offers an opportunity for innovative people to think outside of the box and create change.”

 

The course lasts for 18 months and is delivered in intensive blocks.

 

Potential students must be able to demonstrate that they have the academic skills and business experience as well as the desire to create and manage innovation.
