  • Course description
    Offering exciting opportunities to students who are interested in running a business or creating an entrepreneurial organisation, this innovative course – based on a ‘learning by doing’ approach – combines the worlds of business entrepreneurship and higher education. You will create a business by setting up a team-company in a business environment with like-minded students. Instead of lessons, you will have coaching sessions and various projects with your team-company.

    You will learn by doing real business with real customers and real revenue. A specially trained coach will be on hand to support, motivate and empower you and your team to excel in your entrepreneurial endeavours. You will be able to draw expertise from within our Business School. By the end of this course you will be able to demonstrate professional entrepreneurial, business management and leadership skills; you will also acquire the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

    This innovative approach was developed two decades ago in Finland and has been delivered successfully by universities in France, Spain, Hungary and the Netherlands. As a student on the course you will be part of an international network, which provides excellent opportunities for collaborative learning and entrepreneurship. Our graduates may go on to run their own start-up or work in another business which requires good knowledge of entrepreneurial skills, team working and advanced leadership.

    Course content:

    You will ‘learn by doing’, based upon a personal learning contract that recognises your strength and professional development and de?nes your path to entrepreneurial competence.

    In the ?rst year you will have opportunities to discover, test and stretch your potential to develop the skills of an effective entrepreneur and team player. In the second year, you will enhance your skills, knowledge and talents in managing your team-company. You and your team will focus on building, expanding and sustaining the business.

In the ?nal year, you will be competent in operating the business and putting measures in place to sustain your business.

    Working as a team in an entrepreneurial organisation demands commitment and self-discipline, but it also gives you plenty of self-satisfaction.
