Our Business Entrepreneurship course looks at how to develop businesses from a practical perspective. You are actively encouraged to develop an entrepreneurial spirit and attitude throughout your degree. Innovation is central to this degree.

Learning is built around an entrepreneurial stream that runs through the three stages of the course. This explores key learning in business start-ups, business growth and development, entrepreneurial skills, managing opportunities and entrepreneurial marketing and strategy. There is also the option to complete a year’s work placement to prepare you for your future career.

Experiences are central to this course. As well as guest speakers, industry experts and experienced staff, you will engage in real projects where you will be pitching for real funding to enable you to carry out your business proposal.

Being in business has never been so exciting and rewarding; entrepreneurs have the ability to work across a variety of business disciplines, whether specialising in industries, consulting in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) or setting up in business yourself.
