We are the focal point for enterprise and entrepreneurship learning at The University of Manchester.
Based within the Alliance Manchester Business School, we are recognised as a leader in enterprise and entrepreneurship education and aim to inspire, educate and develop enterprising individuals and enable them to positively impact the growth of dynamic organisations.
The University of Manchester is one of the UK’s leading research institutions with a history of pioneering scientific and engineering breakthroughs – from the splitting of the atom and the world’s first computer, to the recent discovery of the ‘super-material’ Graphene.
Through enterprise and entrepreneurship teaching, learning and business start-up support, our students can capitalise on these research outcomes - transferring knowledge from the classrooms and laboratories to market opportunities. ‘Entrepreneurship for All’ at Manchester can be the driving force to improve the world in which we live – we have the knowledge and we need to apply it for economic and social gain.
Entrepreneurship is vital in the current economic climate and is a driver of growth through the setting up of successful new ventures and the development of existing organisations. There is growing demand for graduates who can solve problems, innovate, see opportunity, manage risk and apply their subject knowledge and skills.
The University has a rich history of graduate entrepreneurial success and this will carry forward in future years with continued high quality research output and an increasing focus on enterprise and entrepreneurship.
