ATU Galway has developed this free, 16-week part-time course to enable ambitious students to transform their ideas into new businesses.
The course is not taught in a traditional classroom setting. Students will have the opportunity to interact with a broad range of project hosts, practitioners, industry leaders, and entrepreneurs.
There will be two days of lectures per week (the majority is online, with three on-campus sessions in the semester). The practical application of learning is embedded in the course through regular real-life project challenges and the incorporation of industry and practitioner guest speakers and contributors into the course.
Multi-disciplinary team participation ensures students are exposed to alternative knowledge, skill sets and perspectives. This exposure broadens participants' horizons and networks, stimulating the crossfertilisation of ideas and capabilities. Delivery of the course will be led by the Innovation Hubs at ATU Galway, which have enabled dozens of potential entrepreneurs to take their ideas from concept to full commercialisation
