Course Description

Business & Entrepreneurship - Conversion Programme



Studies in Semester 1 cover the subjects of Strategy, Marketing, Technology and Operations Management, Venture Finance and Law. Such accelerated learning is designed to give participants the conceptual tools needed to analyse business situations and to undertake business planning. In tandem, participants engage in the initial stages of work on two separate substantive elements of the programme within a seminar/workshop format: (i) the product development project and business development plan; and (ii) the dissertation.

Building on learning from the first semester, studies in Semester 2 cover the subjects of Creativity, Marketing, Technology and Operations Management, Accounting, Law and Taxation. Work also continues on the product development project and business development plan, with support available through weekly group sessions with the module advisors for the 12 class weeks of the semester. Participants then work on their own through to submission of the joint project/plan document in early September. In tandem, participants move to greater engagement with their dissertation research and have the opportunity to work 1-to-1 for a total of four hours with an assigned advisor up to mid-June, at which point participants work on their own through to submission of the dissertation in early September. Submission of both the joint project/plan document and the dissertation marks the end of the programme.
