Course summary

New businesses are the lifeblood of most developed or developing economies. They’re needed by established companies, whether as a supplier offering exciting new inputs or as new ventures within the company.Governments are very keen to stimulate the creation of new businesses and support them, as they are often key to developing regions or creating jobs in areas with high unemployment. Perhaps most importantly, you might want to start a business because you have a passion for creating something new.To start and make a success out of your own business it’s not enough just to have a great idea, you need to manage it well. If this is your ambition, you’ll need to learn a wide range of entrepreneurial concepts and skills. Our Business Management and Entrepreneurship course will prepare you to become innovative, teach you how to manage new ideas and how to apply learning to creating a new business. We aim to give you practical experience through our extensive placement and mentoring programmes, which will equip you with hands-on skills and guidance from industry professionals.A placement year enables students to undertake a year of experience in an organisation between their second and final year. It is a substantial piece of paid experience where you can make a real contribution to your employer and it can really make you stand out from the crowd!It will also enable you to:Apply the knowledge and skills you gain from your course in a work setting Build your commercial awareness and insights into organisations and industries you might want to work in.Develop your professional skills through company training, networking skills and confidence in the workplaceGet some great experience for future job applications or even land a graduate job!Securing a placement can really help you develop your job search skills and the Employability Service placement and careers teams can support you to find and apply for available opportunities.
