As a University we are incredibly passionate about business, and the people who make it all happen.

“Many of the finalists are entrepreneurs, who took a chance with an idea and stepped into the world of Business. This is even more special to us, as a University who is proud to offer Entrepreneurial study at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels.”
