Ever thought you’d like to run your own business some day? That day begins on this practical course!
In each of the three years, you will study entrepreneurship, management, marketing, digital marketing and finance and will be given the opportunity through project work to apply your classroom learning to real business ideas. This knowledge and the transferable skills you acquire are in high demand in business, either as an employee or as an entrepreneur.
This course is 80% continuous assessment and 20% exam based. In year 2, students are given the opportunity to go out on placement one day a week or they may choose to work on their own business idea.
