Course content

This exciting and innovative programme is for students interested in the areas of entrepreneurship and innovation. It is equally valuable either for those wanting to set up their own business (entrepreneurs), or those wanting to pursue a career in an already established organisation (intrapreneurs).

During your studies you will identify and work on an idea that supports your personal career aspirations, you will develop that idea throughout the programme whilst improving your understanding of your entrepreneurial self.

The first part of the course supports you in developing your idea (including a field trip) , the second part provides you with the skills needed to put it into practice. The programme includes guest lectures and and optional company visits through international study trips.

You will also develop a number of key employability skills (eg: flexibility, agility, resilience) that are increasingly important in today’s rapidly changing world.

If you don't meet the entry requirements for our degrees, or if you would like more preparation before you start, you can take one of our pathway programmes.
