Entrepreneurship Means Implementing Innovation at Manchester University!

The Johnston Entrepreneurship Program at Manchester University is about scattering the very powerful seeds of entrepreneurship across a global society.

More than 1,400 institutions of higher education offer at least one course in entrepreneurship and many of these programs cover much the same ground. But here's the key difference. At Manchester, you can study in any major field you like and also earn our Certificate in Innovation.

We train Manchester students to set their own innovations into motion. Our young entrepreneurs will be change makers.

2014-2015 Manchester Innovator of the Year Shaka Senghor to visit and accept award on May 5, 2015

Shaka Senghor: Writing My Wrongs

Orange Is the New Black is fiction. Shaka Senghor is very real. He was incarcerated for 19 years, much of that in solitary confinement. Senghor is coming to Manchester to tell how he found some good in himself while in prison and how he is helping give to others as he moves beyond bad decisions – which included taking a life.  His TED Talk was voted one of the 10 best of 2014, and he is a published novelist and writer.  Currently Senghor coordinates The Atonement Project at the University of Michigan and is a Fellow at the MIT Media Lab. He will accept the Manchester University Innovator of the Year Award during his speech. Come hear his amazing story of atonement and creativity.
