Course content

 

The learning journey of a PhD student can often be a lonely one, with students required to work towards intensive individually researched and sole authored academic projects of scholarly importance. As a consequence, entrepreneurship, team working and networking - elements that are becoming increasing important to the wider world of work - are often neglected. Indeed, many PhD students have ideas that can potentially be commercialized; they also have talent and skills that can be used outside academia. The term used to describe the start-up of a firm based on a research-based idea is calledacademic entrepreneurship, and this has become vital in helping universities fulfill their third mission: to contribute to regional innovation. As the success of university-based spin-offs is dependent on talented PhD students, this course provides the necessary tools for learning about entrepreneurship and commercialization.
