This intensive short course demonstrates how, in the age of change, opportunities beckon potential entrepreneurs to start new businesses and challenge executives and senior managers to transform existing ones. Entrepreneurial, innovative leaders are in demand across the professional spectrum and within multiple organisational contexts. 

Join us:

LSE’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Age of Change is a superb place to acquire skills that are part-and-parcel of a successful leader's portfolio of strategic tools. Successful participants have included:

  • Executives and senior managers whose organisations need an innovative edge
  • Entrepreneurs looking to put their experiences into an broader context
  • Corporate professionals eyeing entrepreneurship as their next move
  • Current and future leaders of family businesses seeking innovative transformations
  • Lawyers, accountants, and advisors who want insights into entrepreneurs
  • Policy-makers responsible for building and growing regional innovation hubs

Dive into the entrepreneurship process:

We have designed the course around a series of cross-cutting questions at the core of what you, as an entrepreneur, need to know and be able to do. 

  • We motivate you to think about how you as an entrepreneur can identify, evaluate, and innovate around opportunities. 
  • We bring practical insights into assembling and managing teams, raising capital, and scaling within entrepreneurial ventures.
  • We address opportunities and challenges that emerging technologies and new markets create. 
  • En route, we weave together a cohesive portrait of the entrepreneurial process.

LSE's approach to executive education is personal and set within the context of your experience. The program integrates case discussions, presentations, and experiential learning to give you hands-on experience in tackling complex entrepreneurial decisions. 

Experience thought leadership in London’s vibrant environment:

True to LSE's culture of thought leadership, we challenge you to think about what entrepreneurs do, how they to do it, and why it matters. We offer you the intellectual space to integrate what you learn into durable frameworks you can apply in the future.  

To make the most of LSE's location in the vibrant heart of London, speakers from London's start-up, financial, and policy communities will join us throughout the week to share with you their visions of the future.  Social events with LSE alumni and other summer executives from all over the world will give you opportunities to network.
