About this course

What if you could get a degree by running your own company? By making money and learning-by-doing with other same minded people? Believe or not, that’s actually possible!

If you flourish with a hands-on team-based approach to learning and have aspirations to be your own boss, then this highly innovative course could accelerate your career development and give you the potential to earn while you study, through setting up and managing your own business in a team. It also offers business management experience that will suit you if you want to work for a business upon graduation.

You will spend much of the course running your own business enterprise within purpose-built business premises. Alongside developing your applied understanding of areas such as management, marketing, human resource management, finance and accounting, you will learn to develop key competences such as creativity, innovation, leadership, communication, team working, strategic planning and decision-making.
