Business and management

Enterprise and entrepreneurship

Studying Business and Entrepreneurship, you learn the key concepts that help uncover the complex nature of organisations and the business environment. You explore the significance of entrepreneurship and innovation to both business and the world. Most exciting of all, you get the opportunity to start and launch your own innovative venture.

You study a range of compulsory modules and in your final year select an optional module in an area that interests you, including Business Law and Supply Chain Management. You learn from established and successful entrepreneurs and apply this to your venture. You will develop innovative solutions in response to genuine problems in the first year, evaluate and select venture-worthy opportunities based on these problems in the second year, and pivot or scale-up in the third year.

You have excellent opportunities to experience entrepreneurship in action through hands-on experience from starting and launching your venture, in-class live case studies, our visiting industry experts, enterprise challenges and even the opportunity to shadow an entrepreneur. You also have an opportunity to gain entrepreneurial skills that will enable you to accelerate your innovative thinking into practice.

**Course Details**

**Stage 1**

Your first year is a compulsory introductory year, designed to provide you with a solid foundation to understand Business and Entrepreneurship where you identify problems that you are passionate about and which present attractive venture-creation opportunities. You will study topics such modern business and employability, marketing principles, principles of new venture creation and innovation management.

**Stage 2**

Your second year is a compulsory, more-specialised year, allowing you to evaluate the business opportunities developed in Year 1 and launch a venture. You will study topics such as project management, entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity, social enterprise and sustainability and launching a start-up.

**Stage 3**

Your final year allows you to commercialise or re-work your venture based on feedback you receive from resource holders, including customers and investors. You will develop your specialist knowledge with a range of modules covering topics such as consultancy and practice, strategic entrepreneurship and innovation, business law and employability rights, and sustainable commercialisation.
