Entrepreneurship is often taught within the context of new venture creation. This module takes an alternative approach and will consider the entrepreneur opportunity locus, the role of creativity, exploitation of change and source & application of innovation. It will provide insight into the nature and identity of entrepreneurship by critically analysing the way entrepreneurial activity creates economic wealth/social value; and will impart an understanding of individual entrepreneurship, corporate entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship. This module will draw on case studies from the creative industries such as Syco Entertainment, Delfont Macintosh and Les Miserables; and firms such as Apple, Nokia and Google. It will consider the corporate culture and the organisation of entrepreneurial firms and enable students to consider career paths, and engagement with entrepreneurs.
