Benefit from a broad, analytical and integrated introduction to business and management, with our Entrepreneurship MBA. Face real-world challenges and experience practical, hands-on learning throughout.

Already have an ARU degree? You may be eligible for our Alumni Scholarship for students starting postgraduate courses.

You want the skills to not only successfully manage a business for your employer, but also the skills needed to go out on your own. You require the skillset used by entrepreneurs to develop their own ideas and create their own organisational structure – as well as to manage and administer it.

The Entrepreneurship MBA at ARU is a broad analytical study of business, with a focus on entrepreneurship. It will give you a comprehensive awareness of organisational issues and the ability to evaluate the potential outcomes of complicated or problematic situations, in a variety of contexts.

There’s the option to study with us for two years, and gain valuable experience in Year 2, with a choice of professional experience modules.
