The strongly entrepreneurial orientation of the University of Huddersfield, in the UK, is the subject of this
article. Section 2 begins with a brief account of Hudderfield’s innovative history, while section 3 summarises the situation today
in terms of examples and mission statement. Section 4 looks at the belief system and values behind Huddersfield’s success, and
sections 5, 6 and 7 explain the vital importance to the curriculum of employer engagement and the sandwich year and other
