About this Course:

Have you thought about starting your own business or working within an enterprising environment?

This course is designed to underpin future careers as entrepreneurs, innovation and enterprise researchers; or work within a dynamic business environment. It will provide students with the opportunity to consider business start-up options, apply enterprise and innovation concepts to a particular business or sector or to a social enterprise sector.

Students will be given the flexibility to direct their own study towards their own end goal, which may be a business start-up or working for a business within a functional area of their choice. Having strong links with a range of enterprise organisations will allow students to complete their key assessment method. This will include the use and completion of live briefs linking to enterprising projects in the local area.

Whilst on the course students will develop academic and practical skills to:

* Demonstrate an understanding of how key organisation functions, processes and structures contribute to organisation effectiveness

* Apply concepts of marketing and financial management to a range of business situations and contexts

* Understand the components of entrepreneurial effectiveness in the context of start-ups, small business and social enterprise
