At Essex Business School we are keen to develop our students into world-leading talent. As a University Enterprise Zone we take particular interest in supporting our entrepreneurial students in helping them to develop their ideas.
Our MBA students are no exception to this. We run bespoke start-up support through our Essex-Start-Ups programme and nurture entrepreneurial ideas in our business incubation unit. Hear from Andy Mew, Head of Start-Up Support at the University of Essex, as he discusses what entrepreneurialism means at Essex and how we support our MBAs.
Leadership forms one of the fundamental pillars of The Essex MBA. We aim to teach purposeful leadership as we believe that the world needs better leaders, whether they are managers, company directors or diplomats. Elisabeth Kelan, Professor of Organisational Studies and Human Resource Management and Lecturer in Leadership on the Essex MBA, is especially interested in gender roles in leadership and she explores this in her module, Leading with Impact, on The Essex MBA.
In this video Elisabeth discusses her interpretation of leadership, why it is important to study leadership on a programme such as an MBA and how leadership development takes many forms, particularly through role models.
