"I always wanted to start my own business, and knew this was the right course for me. I did a lot of research before pursuing my Masters in the UK […] what really caught my attention was the Entrepreneurship Project […] which gave us first-hand experience of how a start-up functions and the various situations that a new company faces. This helped give me the confidence to start my own business."

– Ashmita from India, University of Nottingham alumna of MSc Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Management
