Glasgow Caledonian University

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) recognises that enterprise and entrepreneurship education is a key component of the student experience.

Our Entrepreneurial Teaching Initiative (ETI) is funded by the university’s RealWORLD employability project and offers students an opportunity to engage with entrepreneurs in an academic learning environment. Find out more at our blog – Innovation, Creativity and Enterprise.

In the Glasgow School for Business and Society, we have been developing employer engagement on the business suite of programmes through the creation of an Employers Forum. We have also been embedding the use of web 2.0 technologies into our entrepreneurship education, through the development of apps and the establishment of our collaborative learning space – ‘wikipreneurs’.

GSBS offers the only postgraduate Social Enterprise programme in Scotland designed in partnership with the Scottish Enterprise Academy – MSc Social Enterprise – and in response to demand from the sector to support third sector organisations in demonstrating greater entrepreneurial flair, innovation and self-reliance.

We have direct links with the Scottish Institute for Enterprise (SIE) and partner with Jim Duffy of Entrepreneurial Spark, whilst the student-run Enterprise Society at GCU is all about being creative. The society’s main role is to encourage, support and develop ideas.
