Alumni Entrepreneur of the Year Award Winner

Graduating in 2008 with an MBA, Dr Carsten Mahrenholz co-founded the COLDPLASMATECH GmbH team in 2015 and became a pioneer in plasma medicine.

You’re resilient and not afraid to make mistakes. You also know that as an entrepreneur, it’s important to experiment, accept failure and learn to try again.

Our BSc (Hons) Business with Entrepreneurship degree will equip you with tools that can help you develop, test and realise your ideas. You’ll also learn about applying for grants and reflect on what it really means to be an entrepreneur.

While studying at ARU, you’ll make strong professional connections, build a portfolio and – with regular teamwork and pitching – hone your entrepreneurial thinking and grow in confidence.
