At Heropreneurs we believe that the knowledge and experience gained through an MBA or Executive Diploma at Warwick Business School (WBS) helps transform ambitious and talented individuals into entrepreneurial, creative and effective leaders. Their students have the potential to make an immediate impact in business and society, whether it be on a local or global level. Their motivational teaching and forward-thinking culture provides the perfect environment in which to hone skills, aptitude, and the vision needed to start businesses or transform careers.
