Many modern large companies began life as the brainchild of a single person with a great idea. Typically, that person was an engineer or an inventor who had conceived a unique product and who also had the business skills to nurture the idea from a concept to a prototype, to a product, to a business. To succeed, that person needed the imagination and vision to recognise a niche in the market. After that, they would need to have the design and engineering skills to realise a possible product. Finally, they would have to be able to build the product, market and sell it, and make a profit in doing so. This is a tried and tested route to success. The pioneering Design, Innovation and Entrepreneurship degree programme at the University of Greenwich offers you the opportunity to learn all of these important skills.Management at Medway Campus
