Course summary

Do you dream of running your own business? Do you want to learn how to create a successful business that will thrive in the toughest of economic climates? If you've got a business idea, we'll give you the skills and knowledge to realise it on our Business and Enterprise degree. These skills will help provide what is required to start and run a business but are also relevant and essential for any business career path. ​You’ll learn the fundamentals of business planning and business development, building your understanding of finance and marketing for business. You’ll learn how to formulate a business strategy, make financial forecasts, present and sell your ideas and find customers and clients, as well as discover how to take your business into international markets. Our vocational approach means you’ll get plenty of opportunities to put the business and enterprise skills you develop into practice. Your assessments will be practical, giving you the chance to develop a start-up business and generate your own income stream as part of your degree. We’ll encourage you to spend time delivering real outputs for your business, assessing you on fundamental start-up tasks such as your launch event, marketing plan and financial forecasts. You’ll also be able to develop the entrepreneurial skills sought by larger businesses through a major consultancy project in your final year. You’ll work with other students on new business ideas, using the skills and knowledge you’ve developed to deliver business consultancy, reports and recommendations. Mentoring and networking is crucial for start-up businesses, so we’ll connect you with the wide range of successful entrepreneurs based in our Business and Enterprise Centre. Professional placements You’ll complete professional work placements during your degree, working with SMEs, larger businesses and entrepreneurs in order to understand the day-to-day realities of running a business, enhance your employability skills and provide you with an excellent insight into potential career options. Career opportunities We’ve designed this degree to give you the skills, knowledge and support to start your own business, but the variety of business enterprise and employability skills gained during your degree will also prepare you for a career in areas of business such as marketing, sales, business development and project management. We’ll also help you to prepare for a successful application to a graduate trainee scheme, thanks to the Graduate Trainee Assessment Centre included in your second year.
