Aim of the Programme

The aim of this 3 year programme is to develop graduates who have enterprising and innovative

mind-sets and who are well prepared to thrive in complex uncertain environments. To ensure that students have many opportunities to develop, more than fifty percent of the programme is made up of taught entrepreneurship and innovation modules and a range of applied project modules. 

This design is to help guide students to prepare themselves for workplace change in all sectors and organisations. Along with an applied understanding of business learned throughout the programme and the equivalent number of years work experience at graduation, this programme is designed to prepare students for a world of work where future jobs are yet to be invented. The context of the economic backdrop of Industry 4.0 has influenced the programme design where strategic skills will be required by leaders. Modules reinforce the business context of the discipline and provide the opportunity for students to develop and deepen their understanding of industry in the Northern Ireland context.
