Module overview

The important contributions that high-growth firms make to the economy through their generation of revenue and jobs have long been recognised. Entrepreneurs often seek growth to maximise their returns, while others embark on a trajectory of ‘accidental growth’ based on high demand for their innovative goods and services. However, high-growth creates considerable challenges for many organisations. It can place them under strain, and can result in firm failure. This unique module examines the theoretical frameworks which explain firm growth and provides practical insight into how the associated challenges can be managed. This module will be of interest to students seeking to develop their own business, or who plan on working in dynamic, high-growth firms.
