Course summary

OVERVIEW

Every great business starts as a small seed of an idea. The ones that make it are those that understand their market and have strong strategies to grow and adapt.

On this course, learning that knowledge from the beginning will get you ahead of the competition. Whether you’ve just started a business (or plan to), are working in a small start-up, or want to apply entrepreneurship principles to a career elsewhere, this course gives you the skills to maximise your chances of success.

A real career journey

You’ll begin with idea generation and business planning, before moving on to strategy, which includes looking at marketing and finance. Plus, learn how to scale up in areas like human resources and law. Finally, work on a live business project and pitch your idea to investors before writing up what you’ve learned in the research project.

Every step of the way you’ll learn practical skills you can put to use in your own business.

Food for thought

While the practical skills are vital, you’ll also learn about management systems and analyse organisations’ socio-political environments. By putting your work into context, we believe you’ll be a much more effective entrepreneur when you graduate.

Topics like ethics and globalisation are relevant to any business. With our expert research and teaching staff, and visiting professionals, you’ll hear about the latest industry trends as they’re happening.
