Succeed as an entrepreneur

The Entrepreneurship MBA that equips you to successfully launch your business and lead it to success.

Entrepreneurs need a broad and highly developed skill set if they are to outmanoeuvre the competition in today’s super competitive and challenging business environment. They need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills not just to turn an idea into a business launch, but they must be able to innovate, manage, grow and structure the business as it moves through different stages of its life cycle.

The online MBA Entrepreneurship from the University of Wolverhampton has been designed to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills to be able to plan, launch and manage their own business. The course is also ideal for senior leaders and aspiring leaders who want to innovate and succeed as intrapreneurs within their own organisation.

This MBA course has been designed closely with employer partners, who have a first-hand understanding of what it takes to establish, manage and grow businesses. At the core of this MBA is problem-based learning, relating to real-world practice throughout.

Grow your professional network

An opportunity to learn with fellow entrepreneurs from around the world.

This course can be studied from anywhere in the Midlands, the UK and indeed the world. It has been designed for a global audience of students and, because it is delivered entirely online, there is no need to ever visit campus.

Unlike on-campus and other more traditional modes of study, the online MBA Entrepreneurship is entirely flexible, so your study schedule is up to you. This unique flexibility enables you to study around work and family commitments, which is key because it avoids having to make trade-offs and put your life on hold. You can continue to earn as you learn in your current role and won’t need to take a study break.

You’ll join an online community of tutors and fellow learners and will interact via discussion groups and forums, participating in group learning activities with peers from around the world. This contributes to a truly diverse and rich online learning experience and represents a key opportunity to build important connections in your global professional network. For the duration of the course, you will also be supported in your studies by a Student Success Coordinator.

The online MBA Entrepreneurship has been designed to develop the specialist knowledge and skills required to successfully set up a business. In addition to developing the capabilities required to get a business off the ground, you will learn the business and management skills that are needed to make a success of a business, including how to motivate and lead people and teams, finance, operations, marketing and supply chain management.
