Course Summary


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. 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.

With a keen interest in business, you’ll recognise the practices of entrepreneurship – play, empathy, creation, experimentation and reflection. You can relate your experiences to the field of entrepreneurship to build a successful organisation. Study with us in Cambridge, and gain an understanding of the cultural, political and social contexts that organisations operate within. Discover how economic forces affect and influence organisational practices, and engage in several exercises designed to develop your ability to practice reflection in an entrepreneurial context. Examine the nature of reflective learning, noting its evolution, and analyse several reflective frameworks – plus assess your entrepreneurial character. Explore the fields of management and strategy, noting how strategic analysis and formulation contribute to an organisation’s performance. Study the financial element in decision making and the techniques that may be used to assist informed management decisions. As a postgraduate student at ARU, you’ll learn skills which will lead to you being able to design, test and deliver products and services that customers want.

How you'll be assessed

We place a strong emphasis on practical and professional skills. You’ll be assessed on work-based assignments, research projects, syndicate work and group presentations.


Studying a postgraduate degree is a great way to develop your career, increase your earning potential and study a subject you love. Our Entrepreneurship MBA focuses on providing a broad, analytical and integrated study of business and management. As a graduate you could start your own business, enter a managerial or organisational role, or offer support and knowledge to colleagues in junior or senior management roles.

To enhance your employability even further, as part of your course, you will have the option to undertake a work-based placement. The module aims to provide you with valuable industry experience in a business environment. You'll be able to manipulate data to aid decision and policy making. You may ultimately work at managerial and directorial levels in a wide range of financial environments. Graduation doesn’t have to be the end of your time with us. You could choose to continue your academic career with a PhD programme at ARU.


Within this module you'll explore the fields of management and strategy, noting how strategic analysis and formulation contribute to an organisations performance.

Practical and problem-oriented, this module places emphasis on the application of concepts and exploration of frameworks to assist you in analysing and gaining insight into competitive situations and strategic dilemmas.
