A prestigious MBA to equip you for entrepreneurial success

The 100% online MBA Entrepreneurship degree from Keele University has been created for ambitious and creative individuals across industries, sectors and backgrounds who want to launch a new business or a new venture, or help grow their existing organisations through intrapreneurship. It equips you with the comprehensive business knowledge and skills and innovative capabilities to find creative solutions to the real issues that face organisations. Taught in the context of real-world practice and designed in close collaboration with leading employers, the online MBA Entrepreneurship intensively develops the sought-after knowledge, skills and behaviours to successfully lead in an ethical, sustainable and transformational way.

A 100% online MBA Entrepreneurship designed for adult learners

The online MBA Entrepreneurship degree is ideally suited to busy working professionals and individuals with family commitments who don’t want to put their career ambitions on hold. The flexible programme design means that you can study part-time at times that suit you on mobile or desktop devices whilst continuing to work full-time. It is because the MBA Entrepreneurship is taught and delivered entirely online that you can study and complete it from anywhere in the world, with no need to attend on-campus classes at any time during your studies.

What you will learn

You will develop the ability to employ strategic, critical and creative thinking to successfully navigate the complex challenges of leadership, entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship. The MBA Entrepreneurship degree is structured to enable reflective learning, incorporating an exploration of your own experiences and challenges in professional environments and building on this with peer-to-peer engagement and learning.

You will develop creative problem-solving capabilities, innovation and entrepreneurial skills and an advanced logic for taking action in a wide range of settings that can be applied to new business ventures, small and early-stage enterprises, and established for-profit and not-for-profit organisations.
