New Programme for September 2020
Proposed Course: The following course is proposed for entry from September 2020 and an overview of the course content is given below. This is not, as yet, fully confirmed.
Unlike traditional entrepreneurship programmes, BSc Entrepreneurship gives you the opportunity to work towards starting your own business from the very first semester. If you are driven, committed and full of ideas, BSc Entrepreneurship is for you.
As the course progresses, you will see the tangible impact of your studies by applying your learning to your business venture. To succeed, you need to be a forward thinker, anticipating and dealing with events even before they have happened. You will also need to put a strong emphasis on critical re-evaluation.
This programme is driven by real life business development and aims to produce highly entrepreneurial students who have a continuous desire to be innovative. To get the most out of this programme, in addition to mastering the traditional academic subject matter, you will need to take an active role in the planning, development, management and growth of the business. By working in groups throughout the programme, you will learn and receive support from your fellow students: improving your interpersonal skills and giving you the opportunity to work in a variety of different roles.
The programme begins with the development of a simple business proposal, an introduction to essential business theory and participation in business simulation games. As you progress through the course you will explore a broad range of concepts and apply them to your business project.
All the modules take a student-centred, student driven and collaborative approach. You will start with tackling real-life business projects, and use this as the basis for learning, understanding risks, taking risks and managing risks. Throughout, you will be encouraged to experiment and learn from your successes and failures. Self-reflection, critical reflection and critical discussions are key components of this course. During your time with the University of Salford, you will be encouraged to apply your knowledge in new and unfamiliar environments and come up with creative solutions.
From start to finish, the curriculum explores the challenges and opportunities technology creates for entrepreneurs.
The following modules are proposed for the programme:
Year 1: Starting a Business
Financial and Management Accounting
Financing a Business
Assessing new Business Risk
Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
