Mastering innovation and entrepreneurship at Hong Kongs GREAT Festival

The University of Leicester School of Business (ULSB) is showcasing two brand new Master’s degrees: MSc Entrepreneurship and MSc Innovation Management in Organisations as one of the partners of the GREAT Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong.

Representatives of the University are at the four-day Festival organised by the UK’s Department for International Trade to promote the School’s expertise in entrepreneurship and innovation.

Established to showcase the UK’s creativity and leadership across a host of industry and education sectors, the Festival, taking place until 24 March 2018, focuses on how innovation, technology and creativity will change the way we work, live, learn and play in the years to come.

Steve Conway, Associate Professor of Innovation at ULSB, said: “Our two new courses are aimed at anyone who has an entrepreneurial spirit or innovative mind and would like to learn how to manage innovative ideas, either within organisations or as an entrepreneur.

“With our MSc Innovation Management in Organisations you will learn how to take a product or service from concept to market. With our MSc Entrepreneurship you will learn how to set up a new entrepreneurial business.

“The broad scope of these two Master’s degrees will open up a wide range of entrepreneurial roles for graduates including innovation management, venture capital, entrepreneurial activities and consultancy. Students would also benefit from career support from our in-house Career Development Manager and the University’s Career Development Service which offers tailored postgraduate employability support.”

The courses, which are open for September 2019 entry, involve innovative approaches to learning and teaching, including guest speakers who are entrepreneurs or work in innovative organisations. Five Entrepreneurs in Residence will allow students to learn first-hand from those who have extensive experience in entrepreneurship and innovation.

The School of Business will also be promoting its Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme in Hong Kong.
