The educational aims of the BA Enterprise and Entrepreneurship are to:
Stimulate interest and develop expertise to equip you to generate value through the creation of an entrepreneurial idea, reviewing the feasibility of this idea, formulating a viable business plan, and taking the necessary steps to set up and run a business or entrepreneurial project;
Provide you with an educational opportunity to broaden your knowledge around the specialist subject area of your entrepreneurial idea, to support your venture and to develop a pool of transferable skills; and
Enable you to experience value creation whilst in the supportive environment of the University and make an informed decision about your future employment.
The course aims to provide you with real-world experience and the necessary capabilities required in the business world. This can prepare you for a future career as a graduate entrepreneur, a business owner, or a contributor to an established business.
The ability to demonstrate business-related knowledge and skills in enterprise and entrepreneurship is increasingly sort by employers in small and medium enterprises (SMEs), large private organisations, and within the public sector.
