Entrepreneurship & Innovation

Entrepreneurship and Innovation Courses

Being entrepreneurial is not about being a business owner. It’s a state of mind, a way of thinking and an approach to the business world that demonstrates vision, energy and agility. At AMBS, we think differently. We believe that sharing this way of thinking will inspire our learners to stride a path of innovation, development and growth.

As well as being home to the Masood Entrepreneurship Centre, AMBS also houses the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research, a centre of excellence in the field of innovation studies. Building on a 50-year tradition of innovation and science studies in Manchester, the Institute is comprised of internationally-renowned scholars and experts leading the conversation across a wide range of academic disciplines making it one of the world’s leading research centres in the field of innovation.
