Modules & assessment

Core modules, PG Certificate stage

  • Being Entrepreneurial
    This module will provide a critical introduction to entrepreneurial management from the perspective of the individual, in terms of the personalities, behaviours and mindset associated with entrepreneurial activity and the organisation.
  • The Entrepreneurial Context
    This module will provide a critical introduction to the influence of organisational and environmental context on entrepreneurial management. It will explore the issues of globalisation, cultural diversity, changing work patterns, technological change and many other factors.
  • Research Methods in Entrepreneurship
    Developed specifically for those seeking to carry out research in the area of entrepreneurship, this module will equip you with the knowledge, skills and techniques to undertake robust, methodologically appropriate research.

Core modules, PG Diploma stage

  • Entrepreneurial Processes and Practices
    This module will give you the chance to develop a business idea which addresses an entrepreneurial opportunity. It includes moving from idea to action, recognising and exploiting entrepreneurial opportunities, and entrepreneurial success and sustainability.
  • The Entrepreneurial Proposition
    You will have the opportunity to further develop themes related to the entrepreneurial individual, organisation and task environment, in order to develop a proposition which addresses an entrepreneurial opportunity. You will need to critically reflect upon the ways in which entrepreneurial processes and practices assist in moving from idea to action and the factors impinging upon entrepreneurial success and sustainability (e.g. personal and organisational growth and development). In so doing, you will critically assess how to design, develop and present solutions to different groups of stakeholders related to the entrepreneurial opportunity. This will be underpinned by an experiential teaching approach, where students apply concepts and frameworks to a real-life entrepreneurial opportunity which they have identified themselves. Achievement of learning outcomes will be assessed via a cognitive map and supporting written assignment and poster pitch.
  • Optional Module
    • Strategic Management Accounting • Forensic Accounting (Forensic Analysis and Investigation) • International (Comparative) Governance • Non-Commercial Governance
