Creative Entrepreneur – Next Generation business event

Alex Fenton, Producer of the Creative Entrepreneur event

How can a business school teach entrepreneurship? Can you learn how to develop a business model or a marketing plan from a book? Meeting and hearing from successful international entrepreneurs sharing their real life stories, gaining feedback on ideas and establishing new links are all great ways to learn about entrepreneurship and grow your network.

At Salford we recognise the importance of strong links with industry. They help us keep our teaching relevant to the real world and mean we can offer great opportunities to help our students to get employment-ready.

Our Creative Entrepreneur event is a key example of this in practice. At the event, held annually at our state of the art campus at MediaCityUK, individuals from partner organisations volunteer their time and share their experience with students at the University of Salford.

At the latest event, on 25th of November 2015, we welcomed over 40 guest speakers who delivered an exciting programme of master-classes, panel sessions and installations to inspire, inform and entertain over 460 attendees. These were a combination of local businesses, University staff, students and local colleges. Several of our courses and modules were present, creating great opportunities for our students. Read on to find out more about key points from the event and what happened.



Attend the Graduation Ceremony at Salford University as a guest

On 18 July 2014, I attended in the graduation ceremony of my friend who graduated from Salford Business School. The ceremony was located at Media City UK, which is located in the most beautiful riverside of Manchester – Salford Quays.

It makes me recall my graduation ceremony last year, as a international student, my parents haven’t got the chance to join my graduation, it was a big pity for me. But one of my best friends called Roy joined my graduation ceremony, it made me so happy and moving, because he was not an international student based in the UK. He studies in China, it’s hard to get visa for the UK, and the flight ticket is not cheap for a Chinese student.
