Do you dream of running your own business? Do you want to learn how to create a successful business that will thrive in the toughest of economic climates?
If you’ve got a business idea, this course will give you the skills and knowledge to realise it.
In the integrated Foundation Year in Business you will undertake modules to help develop your academic skills and confidence and will be introduced to key concepts, debates and skills that will support and inform your second, third and fourth years of undergraduate degree study.
You’ll study business objectives, practices and principles through case study research, lectures, workshops and student-led activities. You’ll look at the supply chain and logistics, production and project management as well as business organisation, human resources and the principles of leadership.
You’ll examine the modern business environment and how ‘start-up’ businesses grow as technology advances. You will focus on sustainability and the opportunities or limitations small businesses face, as well as developing your own concepts and business plans through a series of lectures, workshops, course work and group work.
