If you're looking to disrupt the world with innovative ideas, discover new trends and emerging markets, and carve out your career as an entrepreneur or business leader with a focus on technology, then this course is for you.
It brings together cross-disciplinary content designed to help you innovate, analyse trends, solve problems creatively, road test concepts, scope out their marketability and build sustainable businesses of the future – all by adopting a tech-first mindset.
As well as gaining a deep understanding of core business competencies, you'll learn
how technology can be used to shape and grow businesses, and develop your skills in effective collaboration, leadership, strategic planning, budgeting, negotiation and pitching – plus the commercial aptitude to exploit new trends and market opportunities ethically, increasing your ability to build a brand, seek funding and forge networks.
