Why study Business Management and Entrepreneurship?
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.
