Course summary

This course provides you with insight into new venture creation and growth, as well as the internationalism of business. We equip you with business knowledge and develop your practical skills through a combination of entrepreneurial theory, group work, business simulation games and interactive projects. Upon graduation, you may decide to use what you have learnt to launch your own business. You explore topics high on the agenda of international businesses, governments, policy-makers, researchers, educators and wider communities. For example: business start-up and growth; strategic entrepreneurship; the international business environment; international business strategy; innovation; international trade; economics; technology and international human resource management. Essex is one of just three UK universities to have received Q-Step Affiliate status, including for this course, to support the way we develop your quantitative skills. This means we can provide work placement bursaries to develop your skills in evaluating numerical evidence, analysing data and designing research. We also offer the chance to follow a specialised degree path, where you graduate with enhanced quantitative skills. These are evidenced on your degree transcript, to help give you an advantage in the graduate job market. Essex Business School, where this course is taught, is the largest department at the University of Essex and is ranked in the top 25 in the UK for research excellence (REF, 2014). This ensures our teaching is always up-to-date with current and emerging business trends. You learn at our Southend Campus, located close to London in the Thames Gateway - one of the UK’s priority areas for economic growth. Our award-winning new building, The Forum, offers 24-hour computer suites and study pods. You study at our town centre campus, which means you’re in amongst the buzz of the High Street, while still being just a few minutes’ walk from Southend’s award-winning beaches.
