Technology Management Part-time Studies Course

Course Details

This course is designed to help students develop a strong hands-on understanding of entrepreneurship in relation to business strategy and innovation.

It cuts across the whole spectrum of business and management. The focus is the total enterprise - including the industry and competitive environment in which it operates - its long-term direction and strategy, its resources and competitive capabilities, and its prospects for success.
