You want an entrepreneurship degree?
Ideal for candidates who need additional preparation before undergraduate study, the first year of this programme is a Foundation course. Offering a bridge between current knowledge and undergraduate study, the Foundation course offers students a stepping stone between the two.
Take this Business Management degree combined with entrepreneurship courses
If you are fascinated by the world of entrepreneurship and fancy becoming an entrepreneur yourself, then this could be the degree for you. It combines the essence of our unique two-year Business Management degree together with a range of modules focused on entrepreneurship and enterprise.
In addition to studying central business management modules, you will study the psychology of entrepreneurship, innovation, and social enterprise. Your entrepreneurship education will finish with a project dissertation focused entirely on an aspect of entrepreneurship that you find fascinating. Plus, there is a great deal more along the way dedicated to understanding entrepreneurship through seminars and workshops. This is not just a degree in business management.
Get work experience with entrepreneurs
During your Business Management with Entrepreneurship degree, you will get a chance to work with a local entrepreneur in a work placement for nine weeks. In addition, you will be able to meet and work with local businesspeople and entrepreneurs who use our Buckingham Enterprise and Innovation Unit (BEIU) for meetings and work. You will often find them chatting with students who are getting a degree in business management and entrepreneurship.
The BEIU also has links around the world with leading entrepreneurship educators who may also contribute to your degree from time to time. Furthermore, we have our “B-Enterprising” scheme that allows you to work in a local business and get paid by the university for these internships.
In the Business School, we also have students doing our Business Enterprise degree where they have actually started a business themselves. You will get to study alongside these budding entrepreneurs on several modules and understand from them what it is like to be an entrepreneur. Indeed, you may even find yourself being asked to help them with some of their business tasks…!
What can I do with a Business Management with Entrepreneurship degree?
Many students who study entrepreneurship degrees go on to set-up their own businesses; they become entrepreneurs. We have many Buckingham graduates who are now running their own successful entrepreneurial companies.
Other students go to work in corporates. Companies are crying out for people with skills in entrepreneurship because, as you will discover on this programme, they can innovate, be creative and deal with technological disruption. This entrepreneurship and business management programme provides you with the skills and knowledge in high demand by businesses. They call it “intrapreneurship” – entrepreneurs inside their company.
Sometimes, of course, students decide to stay on to complete a master’s degree. Several take our MBA programme. This allows them to get a B.Sc and an MBA in three years, because our Business Management with Entrepreneurship degree is a two-year programme.
