Introductory modules explore the concepts of enterprise and entrepreneurship and their role in society. You’ll examine how enterprise is seen around the world, and how different geographical and economic contexts create challenges for new ventures. You’ll hear first-hand from successful entrepreneurs during guest lectures and consider their experience of the latest topics and debates. You’ll also develop your understanding of research methods in business and enterprise studies. The course has a practical focus, and you will work on a range of projects that allow you to gain real experience – you’ll create a business plan for a new venture and deliver a consultancy project for an established business or social enterprise. In the final semester, you’ll complete a dissertation project on a research question of your choice - this can be used to explore your own ideas for a new business venture or social enterprise, look at how best to support or grow an existing firm, or explore a research topic related to your ambitions.
Assessment methods emphasise not just knowledge, but essential skills development too. This may include formal exams, group projects, reports, computer simulation exercises, essays and written assignments, group and individual presentations and reflective logs. This diversity enables you to develop a broad range of skills as preparation for professional life.
A bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) in any subject. A background in business or management is desirable, but applicants from other disciplines are welcomed.
