Innovation and entrepreneursip
My focus and interest is on delivering research-led teaching. For example, I teach an MBA module on Innovation and Entrepreneurship. This module is a core MBA module and focuses on encouraging the students to develop linkages between key innovation concepts as well as helping them to explore and develop their entrepreneurial capabilities. I also teach a final year Undergraduate module entitled Advanced Entrepreneurship. This 'active learning' module gives the students the opportunity to carry out a consultancy project for a local small firm or organisation in order to tackle a specific issue or challenge. This allows them to explore the opportunities as well difficulties in running a small business.
