Course summary

This course is a specialist business pathway which will allow you to complete a level 5 qualification whilst developing generic business skills and specialist entrepreneurial skills. The course aims to provide you with a sound understanding of the knowledge and skills across a range of disciplines including Marketing, Human resources, Management and Finance. This is supported by entrepreneurial and small business management skills including launching a new venture, operational management of a small business and planning social media campaigns. Students would either progress onto university to top up to a degree and specialise at this stage, gain employment and pursue professional qualifications or start their own company.
