What you'll learn
As part of this unique entrepreneurship course, you'll take on one module from each of our three categories every term. 'External' modules cover things like market research, industry partners, and customers. 'Internal' modules look at management topics like finances, operations and people. And 'You' modules consider your developing skills, like creative thinking, self-reflection and specialist knowledge.
Developing your foundational knowledge, you’ll investigate the key elements of business, the landscape’s challenges, and future trends. You’ll get an insight into finance, marketing, and how to understand and influence people - while exploring data, information and intelligence. And you’ll improve your relationship-building and decision making skills by pitching and presenting ideas as a team.
Innovation and Improvisation
Effective Marketing and Sales
Understanding and Influencing People
Along with your team, you’ll put your business plan into action and pitch your product or services to your target market. You’ll also develop your expertise and skills in managerial and team roles, thinking and expressing yourself in terms of data and business.
Industry Networks and Alliance Building
Team Development and Cohesion
Team Leadership and Performance
Personal Effectiveness, Impact and Reputation
Finalising your Business and Entrepreneurship degree, you'll present a leadership project in an interview and showcase, build a portfolio showing your professional standing, take on team challenges around your business, and develop a strategy for your company. You'll also choose between completing an applied project, work placement or dissertation.
The modules above are those being studied by our students, or proposed new ones. Programme structures and modules can change as part of our curriculum enhancement and review processes. If a certain module is important to you, please discuss it with the Course Leader.
How you'll learn
You’ll deliver real products or services as you form a business team, develop a plan, create your venture and take it to market. For each module, you’ll attend a weekly one hour lecture and two-hour seminar, and fit online study materials around your schedule. The course is designed to give you time to embed your learning into your entrepreneurial venture.
You’ll receive training and support from professionals and practitioners from every corner of the business world. Their experience covers senior roles at multinationals, winning research awards and investigating social media innovations in business.
