Nurturing our own entrepreneurial talent

Our academics encourage you to utilise your creative thinking and develop your own business ideas during your studies.

The success of our approach is seen in a 2020 study that ranked us 7th best of 121 universities for graduates looking to start or manage a business. Almost one in seven (13.51%) of our alumni manage or own a business.

Giving global support for student business

Students across our three global campuses develop a global and entrepreneurial skillset so they’re ready to make a difference with their own business ideas.

In London, our Enterprise Development Hub supports around 600 students with new business ideas every year. Students and alumni take part in our MDXcelerator start-up support programme working with students on our Dubai and Mauritius campuses.

Student Mahsa Samadi founded a jewellery business on the programme.

She said, “The mentoring started to light something up in my mind. I moved onto jewellery, went to workshops, made a business plan. I understand how you can start with little and grow. Now the turnover is very good.”

In Dubai, our Centre of Innovation and Entrepreneurship helps students to carry out business and creative activities, as part of the Dubai Future Foundations’ entrepreneurship programme.

In Mauritius, we get students in the room with funders and backers, like at the Development Bank of Mauritius Campus Entrepreneur Challenge and HSBC Business Case Challenge.
