Business Studies with Enterprise BA (Hons)

This course is delivered by the AACSB accredited Business School, an accreditation which places us within the top institutions globally for business degrees. Less than 5% of business schools worldwide have attained this hallmark of excellence which recognises a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching and student learning.

Revered for its flexible approach, our portfolio of Business Studies courses allows you to apply to our broad Business Studies degree (N100) and then transition to a favoured business speciality in year two. What’s more, as this course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), you’ll not only graduate with a degree in Business Studies with Enterprise, but receive a CMI leadership and management qualification too.

This Business Studies with Enterprise course is the perfect pathway for those harbouring ambitions of starting and managing their own business. You'll develop a critical appreciation of issues related to intrapreneurial and entrepreneurial activity, whilst equipping yourself with the necessary skillset to start and manage your own business.

Your curriculum, taught by highly qualified lecturers and industry-savvy practitioners, will be peppered with numerous networking events and compelling talks held by guest speakers from a variety of business disciplines. Plus there’s the possibility of travel in year two, as you can study the second semester at one of BU’s international partner institutions, currently in Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United States.

A 30-week period in industry will help to season your CV in year three, giving you essential real world experience, placing your theory and skills into practice, and harvesting a network of professional contacts – all vital for successfully launching your career.
