Having spent a few years in Wealth Management in a corporate environment, the MSc Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Management programme was the perfect option for me to gather new skills and knowledge in order to pursue my entrepreneurial ambitions and broaden my career options. The entrepreneurship ecosystem is fantastic, and as one of the most innovative universities and leading business schools in the world, I could not find any other institution that offered a programme as complete and worthwhile as this one.
