The University of Huddersfield offers many postgraduate research programmes at both Masters and Doctoral level, but the Masters and Doctor of Enterprise are perhaps less well documented https://students.hud.ac.uk/enterprise/enterprisedegrees/. With a view to relaunching these programmes, they will soon be working with the 3M BIC and its network members to understand the potential value and opportunity these programmes may offer to businesses such as yours.
Both the Doctor and Masters of Enterprise offer the opportunity for post graduate qualifications in research; utilising the research output to support either a new business start-up, or an innovation in an existing business. They would like to understand if businesses would find value in the combination of such a research opportunity, to develop and innovate their business activities, combined with the continuous professional development of the candidate.
In the coming weeks, they will offer the opportunity for network members to complete an online survey regarding these programmes, and also the option to participate in a focus group or 1:1 interview. They would be very grateful for your responses and participation in this market research activity and thank you in advance for your support.
The survey is being conducted by Nigel King, Dean of the Graduate School and Philip Clegg, Head of Enterprise & Entrepreneurship.
