Inspire a new generation of innovative entrepreneurs and leaders 

This is no ordinary role. It’s a unique opportunity to bring insights and inspiration from your enterprising career to a leading business school. This role is an opportunity to shape the future of your industry while continuing to make your mark on its present. Your expertise will influence how the new generation build thriving, mould-breaking businesses on the world stage.  

Southampton Business School at the University of Southampton is one of the UK’s top business schools. With a truly distinctive multidisciplinary approach, we educate ambitious leaders who want to change the world. Our world-class, cutting-edge research shapes future business practices and solves problems for businesses, organisations and governments. We have links with many of the world’s leading companies. And we bring together experts from a diverse range of business fields through an integrated enterprise strategy that reinforces connections with industry. 

As an Enterprise Fellow you will develop and manage enterprise activities ranging from executive education and CPD provision, to consulting, applied research or facilitating spin-outs for clients, customers and stakeholders. Whether developing approaches to teaching and learning, or shaping new income streams, you will enjoy scope to innovate and make a significant impact. The option for a part-time role makes this an excellent fit alongside other activities, such as consultancy, in industry.

You will bring to the role a strong professional reputation in industry, a track record of consultancy activities and a proven ability to build networks in your industry. Experience of executive education would be a real advantage, but most important is your ability to engage and inspire students and colleagues alike. An innovative and original thinker, you have a flair for building relationships, motivating and developing people, and shaping successful, enterprising activities. 

The Department of Strategy, Innovation and Enterprise (DSIE) offers an inclusive platform for interdisciplinary and impactful research and teaching in the following subject areas: social and sustainable entrepreneurship and innovation, corporate social responsibility, family business, SMEs growth and international entrepreneurship, academic entrepreneurship, digital ecosystems, innovation management, the strategy process, and the theoretical foundations of entrepreneurship and strategy research.
