The Entrepreneurship and Innovation BSc has been specifically created to help you put learning into action while you study by creating your own start-up business. Through a series of specialist modules in your second and third year (including your final year project), you will develop entrepreneurial skills and a nimble approach to business and innovation. You’ll gain confidence in your acumen and become quick to recognise and evaluate new business opportunities while calculating risk. The hands-on, practice-based learning of the course is key to this. You’ll create, run and grow a real-life enterprise as part of a group consisting of up to five students. By learning through doing, you’ll be able to apply theory very early on in the degree course to solve social and economic problems. Along the way, you’ll learn from academics and receive support from professional business mentors who will help you to get the most out of your degree while developing your start-up. There are lots of resources available to you that can help you shape your degree into what you want it to be: The Brunel Innovation Hub offers expert advice and funding on student start-ups Through the Co-Innovate programme, you can opt to collaborate with an SME and help them solve a real business problem as part of your final year project You can choose to take a work placement in your third year (find out more on our work placement year page) or focus on developing your start-up We make sure that you have access to a variety of activities and events to challenge your self-starter mentality including the Mayor's Entrepreneur Competition Before you get there though, your first year will be an introduction to general business and management through six compulsory modules that will provide you with a good understanding of theory and practice. The emphasis will be on developing your commercial awareness and preparation for new business creation, as well as for a work placement if you have opted to take one (you can opt to use your placement year to develop your enterprise too). Your hands-on experience of experimental new venture creation and growth, means you’ll be ready for self-employment or entering a corporation which highly values this experience particularly for launching new products and services. Your understanding of business social responsibility and culture in an international business context, alongside the ability to manage resources and overcome barriers, means you can excel in any sector in which you choose to work.
