Many businesses rely on enterprise and innovation to manage uncertainty and ensure sustained growth. This course teaches you to become an effective entrepreneur and an innovative leader – with the insight to identify opportunities, implement new processes, harness new technology and transform global businesses into market leaders.
You’ll discover how to identify and develop a potential market opportunity, and drive sustained business growth – undertaking market research, making strategic decisions, managing uncertainty, exploring new technology, generating ideas and overcoming challenges.
Working with your classmates, you’ll construct a business plan for a new profitable offering and work together to refine it – for instance, analysing the cost implications of adding or subtracting certain features. By doing this, you'll gain a solid grounding in business principles and a deep understanding of how enterprises thrive: learning core competencies like finance, law, regulations, operations and organisational behaviour, while developing your specialist skills, creative thinking, strategic decision-making and ability to innovate, globally.
Learn in London – the UK's business hub
From global organisations to new start-ups, studying in London offers opportunities to engage with all aspects of the business arena – gaining valuable work experience and meeting influential industry contacts.
You'll join bootcamps, simulations and creative labs to learn to think like a leader and an entrepreneur, and work on live briefs commissioned by industry experts that will expose you to real-world business issues and give you the strategic skills to combat them.
You'll graduate with a practical, future-facing business education that's entrepreneurial, network-driven and tech engaged.
In your Foundation year, you'll gain a solid grounding in academic skills and principles, as well as an introduction to your chosen subject area.
It will provide a rich and varied experience to ensure you’re prepared for degree-level study in the UK – ready to develop specialist knowledge and confidently make the most of your course.
Some modules will be taken with students heading towards the same or related subject areas, while others will be taken with a blend of students – enabling you to mix with peers who bring a range of different perspectives and experiences to the classroom.
You’ll take two modules related to your subject area and eight shared modules covering key skills like communication, critical thinking, cultural understanding, politics, data, creativity and entrepreneurship.
