Career Prospects

It will also help develop the entrepreneurial skills students need to start their own business or run an innovative project within a large organisation.

Course Details

In the first year you will consider the global nature of business, including the issues which impact on strategy and how organisations – and their people – behave and can be managed. Finance and marketing form two of your practical business disciplines, and you’ll be encouraged to develop skills enabling you to access, gather, interpret, present and communicate business information. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop your own professional skills and explore entrepreneurship, a key theme of this course.

In the second year, you will explore how to create local and international opportunities for your future ventures through gathering information, critically evaluating options, and planning carefully. Tensions can exist between entrepreneurial leadership styles and you can explore these and more measured, traditional approaches to business opportunities. In all cases, you’ll learn to develop and recommend viable solutions to business opportunities and challenges..

In the final year, you will have the opportunity develop your strategic capabilities while also polishing the vital skills you may need for job applications and interviewing. You will focus on project management and research skills, which may be useful not only throughout your career but will also be particularly helpful as you undertake your 11-week final major project. (A choice of an internship, a dissertation, Entrepreneurship Business plan or a software-based business simulation.)
