Management and Entrepreneurship
People are increasingly likely to work within the small- and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector and to start their own businesses, while those within the corporate, public and third sectors are increasingly expected to work in project-based venture teams. Entrepreneurial skills are essential for career success. This is an intensive course designed to give you an in-depth understanding of entrepreneurship, enterprise and small business in different organisational, sectoral and geographical contexts. It also helps you to build practical skills related to identification of opportunities and conceptualising, designing, managing and growing new ventures (eg writing an entrepreneurial business plan for a new venture).
