The Atlantic Centre for Entrepreneurship and Executive Development is now accepting applications for its upcoming ‘Scaling a Business’ course which will run from 26 November – 2 December. The Centre is a partnership between experienced academia and proven entrepreneurs globally to provide essential applied entrepreneurial skills, knowledge and networks to support innovation and business creation and growth.

The centre runs a series of focused courses, events, workshops and labs, co-designed and co-delivered between NUI Galway academics, experienced entrepreneurs, and partners. These are designed to develop and enhance entrepreneurial capabilities and skills for attendees and their teams, whether starting, scaling or innovating within organisations.

The ‘Scaling a Business’ course involves intense immersion in a business-friendly delivery format, through a comprehensive series of experiential programmes. Focusing on scaling a business the course deals with scaling issues such as entrepreneurial selling, collaborative selling, relationship building and customer centricity, revenue scaling, widening the customer base, expanding the enterprise, finance and working capital, scaling models of distribution and operations, people management for scaling and growth, and developing teams and skills.

‘Scaling a Business’ involves direct mentoring and one-to-one focus, tailored and applied to a particular business or idea. Among the experienced team involved in delivering this course is Robert Rosenberg, formally at the prestigious Polsky Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Chicago Booth School of Business.

Dr Tom Acton, Head of NUI Galway’s J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics, said: “Playing an enhanced role in the development of our economy requires collaboration between academia, industry partners and proven entrepreneurs, to proactively scale companies who are based in Ireland but operating in international markets. To that end, we have partnered with the global best, to deliver focussed and applied intensive programmes in business scaling through a new centre called the Atlantic Centre for Entrepreneurship and Executive Education.  The impact of the programme is clear, evidenced by the testimonials on the web site.”

The course carries 30 ECTS credits and successful completion of the course qualifies for the award of an NUI Galway Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Entrepreneurship.
