Fascinated by business? Become a budding entrepreneur in our business department.

Are you a future business leader? Do you have the ambition and drive to launch your own enterprise or to succeed within a blue chip company?

If you’re fascinated by business, you’ll enjoy the variety and fun of our courses. We’ll encourage you to think like an entrepreneur and you will learn how to run your own company, how to spot a business opportunity and how to develop your idea successfully into something customers want.

You will enjoy lectures from staff who have experience of running their own businesses, and you will also do a lot of independent study and projects which will help you to recognise where your strengths and interests lie.

If event management is your thing, you will join like-minded fellow students in helping to run events on and off campus. Our students get involved in all sorts of activities, from organising student socials and charity events, to helping to set up opening ceremonies for major public events and helping at international events.

Former students have gone on make their name as human resource managers, marketing directors or accountants while others are running their own successful businesses. Who knows – you could be about to follow in their footsteps!

  • Their work placement and the great chance it gives them to gain real life business skills
  • Being actively involved in running events on campus and in the community
