Entrepreneurship & Innovation
course is designed for future private entrepreneurs and public leaders who want to build new ventures
operating in, or selling into, traditionally public domains. Throughout the last few years, we have seen
a wave of new public entrepreneurs start companies that eventually sell to government institutions, or
directly to citizens, and a growing interest in these companies by ventures funds and other investors.

Social Accounting And Audit
This course provides students with a logistical and flexible framework to build upon their organisation’s existing documentation and reporting systems. Processes to complete social accounting and auditing will also be developed as part of this course, to further understand the impact of your organisation on society at large, as well as help you better understand how resources are being utilised. It is essentially aimed at helping students manage their organisation and improve its effectiveness. Social accounting and audit can be used by any organisation, whether voluntary, public, or private, and at any size or scale. Our Social Accounting & Audit programme will help to prove, improve, and account for the difference an organisation is making, helping leaders to plan and manage their organisation, as well as demonstrate what the organisation has achieved.
