Cornwall Business School

Our Business courses encourage the fearless pursuit of innovation across a spectrum of sectors. Learning from practicing academic staff and with access to our industry connections, you’ll hone your entrepreneurial skills by tackling live challenges in transdisciplinary teams.

Falmouth University Business students sat on chairs on grey floor looking at work together.

We believe entrepreneurship is a mindset, not a job title. Whether you work for Google, the UK Space Agency or the NHS, your career will be enhanced if you’re an innovative, entrepreneurial and solution-oriented professional. 

Throughout your Business degree, you’ll apply key business theories to real-world problems through live briefs, marketing campaigns for real clients or the development of your own business or product. So, whether you head into the worlds of tourism or events or embark on your own start-up venture, you’ll be set to make your mark as a next-generation professional.
