  • The interaction between lecturers and students makes us more engaged in the subject as the class is relatively small. I enjoyed the guest lectures from entrepreneurs, learning how they became successful.

  • It was very practical and offered inspiring activities. The lectures and seminars are organized in a way that ensures students have many opportunities to liaise with entrepreneurs through on-course activities. The Global Perspectives on Enterprise module was particularly useful as we were given the chance to work on a project with a guest mentor for a week.

  • The lectures and seminars are very engaging. The staff are all excellent and we’ve all really enjoyed and learnt a lot from the guest speakers. The Enterprise tour of local businesses from Leeds to York was a highlight of last semester as we got to see a range of business ideas and models.

Course programme

Introductory modules explore the concepts of enterprise and entrepreneurship and their role in society. You’ll examine how enterprise is seen around the world, and how different geographical and economic contexts create challenges for new ventures.

You’ll consider contemporary issues and debates during guest lectures with successful entrepreneurs, hearing first-hand about their experience of the latest topics. You’ll also develop your understanding of research methods in business and enterprise studies.

The course has a practical focus and you will work on a range of projects that allow you to gain real experience – you’ll create a new venture and work in a team to deliver a consultancy project for an entrepreneurial business.

In the final semester, you’ll complete a dissertation project on a research question of your choice - this can be used to explore your own ideas for a business venture or social enterprise, or look at how best to support or grow an existing firm.

You’ll also have a choice of optional modules in key areas of management and international business, including cross-cultural management, supply chain management and the emerging markets.

If you study part-time, you’ll study one day per week over 24 months and take only the compulsory modules, plus a dedicated module in applied enterprise. The part-time option enables existing entrepreneurs to continue to develop their own enterprise, whilst professionals and budding entrepreneurs can work alongside their studies.

Learning and teaching

We use a variety of different teaching methods such as lectures, seminars, tutorials, work-based learning, fieldwork and workshops. Independent study is also vital to this programme, allowing you to develop your skills and prepare for taught sessions and assessments.

The Enterprise Project module is one example of how practical learning and teaching is embedded in the programme. This gives students the chance to work closely with an entrepreneur and undertake a strategic developmental role within their business. For example, recent student Ratawan Tanadumrongsak completed a group project for Twinkl Ltd, an online business supplying education resources worldwide. You can read a case study about this project here.

Assessment

Assessment methods emphasise not just knowledge, but essential skills development too. You’ll be assessed using a range of techniques including exams, group projects, written assignments and essays, in-course assessment, group and individual presentations and reports.
