Business Entrepreneurship BA (Hons)

Being in business has never been so exciting and rewarding. The programme is built around an entrepreneurial stream that runs through the three stages of the course.
This explores key learning in business start-up, business growth and development, entrepreneurial skills, managing opportunities and entrepreneurial marketing and strategy. You will develop the skills, attitudes and visions of the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. You will work across a range of traditional business methods, alongside the visions of ‘tomorrow’s’ business in order to succeed: innovation is central to this degree. You are encouraged to undertake a year-long placement between stages two and three of study. The students that choose to take up a placement year find it an invaluable experience that helps them to apply their learning in their final year and prepare them for their career. There is a lot of support in finding a placement, which can be in the UK or overseas.

Business entrepreneurship looks at how to develop businesses from a practical perspective. Success comes not only from business knowledge but also from personal attitude. You are actively encouraged to develop an entrepreneurial spirit and attitude throughout your degree programme.

Features: Regular input from entrepreneurs, guest speakers and business specialists.

Career opportunities: Entrepreneurs have the ability to work across a variety of business disciplines, whether specialising in industries, consulting in SME’s or setting up in business yourself.
