Aims and objectives

This unit focuses on contemporary theoretical and practice-based issues in entrepreneurship and innovation, which will be integrated with business and management theories, models and frameworks. On completion of the unit students will be able to identify, analyse, evaluate and offer value-creating solutions to local and global business and social problems from entrepreneurship and innovation perspectives.
 
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
 
1 Define and integrate theoretical principles applicable to entrepreneurship and innovation and apply these to problems and opportunities that might arise in the business and/or social context.
 
2 Systematically review and critically evaluate research from a range of sources in order to make informed judgements on options for using entrepreneurship and innovation in business contexts.
 
3 Build on and continuously develop the intellectual independence to be critical and reflective learners, who are cognisant of the relevance of entrepreneurship and innovation to their business discipline.
 
4 Work collaboratively in diverse groups.
