Entrepreneurship is the development of a start-up company or business which has created an innovative product or service. The aim of an entrepreneur is to create a product or service and turn it into a profitable business.
Students can study entrepreneurship at undergraduate level through a BA (HONS) or BA (SC) degree type. Some institutions also offer business management courses that offer entrepreneurship as a specialisation. Undergraduate entrepreneurship courses can take between 3 and 4 years to complete depending on the institution and course structure.
If you are looking to study a postgraduate degree in entrepreneurship you can choose between an MA in Entrepreneurship and an MBA specialising in entrepreneurship. A postgraduate degree can take between 1 and 2 years of full time study to complete, with some institutions requiring a work placement in the industry as part of the course.
Most entrepreneurship degree programs cover the fundamental skills needed to plan, fund and launch a business. The modules covered include accounting and venture capital, market analysing and assessment, and business plan development and creation.
