Our Ethos
An entrepreneurial college is a college where the
ethos, values and culture of learning are
distinctively geared towards the task of business
formation and growth, wealth creation and
employment outcomes.
The Starting Point - Entrepreneurial Culture
• Include ‘entrepreneurial’ as one of your values
• Set high expectations for whole organisation
change
• Create a vision and relentlessly pursue it
• Create space from the day job for this to happen

The Gazelle Babson Leadership Programme
Gazelle rejects existing models of leadership
that see planning as a largely predictable
activity
To build entrepreneurial college you need to
think and act entrepreneurially
Entrepreneurship is a practice and the
leadership programme enables leaders to
practice entrepreneurship
The Gateway Module
• Provides an introduction to entrepreneurial thought
and action
• Explores tools and techniques for leaders to develop
the entrepreneurial college
• The Babson methodology is at the leading edge
• promotes smart action ("act quickly with the means at
hand") as the foundation of innovation and learning
• reframes risk as "a measure of upside and
opportunity"
• produces ideas and plans for implementation in
colleges
