Enterprise and Entrepreneurship

Course Overview

Are you interested in furthering your career in Business and Entrepreneurship? Would you like to start your own business or venture in the future? Enterprise and Entrepreneurship will give you the opportunity to study exciting fields such as Marketing, Finance and Launching and Running an Enterprise, to name just a few.

Entry Requirements

A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including Maths and English, plus enthusiasm for the Business and Enterprise subject area.

Employability

In addition to the enterprise sector­ specific content, the requirements of the qualification will mean students develop the transferable and higher ­order skills that are highly regarded by both Universities and employers.

The qualification is intended to carry UCAS points and is recognised by university providers as meeting admission requirements to many relevant Degree courses, for example: BA (Hons) Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, BA (Hons) Business Enterprise and BA (Hons) Business and Management.

However, the qualification also supports students choosing to progress directly to employment, as the transferable knowledge, understanding and skills will give successful students an advantage when applying for a range of entry level roles or ‘school leaver’ programmes of management, and Higher Apprenticeships in areas such as business, administration, marketing, accounting, sales or enterprise.
