Entrepreneurship as a new unit

13.06.2016 | | George Mossford

We announced recently that we will be switching to a newer programme specification starting in the Fall. This new programme retains virtually all of the benefits of the previous pathway, but includes many significant improvements, such as a simpler assignment brief, broader scope and an increased visibility of key development areas.

One of the new unit offerings, Unit09 Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, is particularly exciting as there is a real need for entrepreneurs with the skills and knowledge to launch new ventures, not just in Finland but throughout Europe. Individuals with skills, competencies or experience in this area are also highly-valued by employers. Whilst providing a generalise background to the topic area, this level 4 unit will also ensure that learners understand the definition and scope of entrepreneurship, recognise the importance of external influences, can identify the enablers and barriers to business start-up, pinpoint the personal characteristics and situational factors of successful entrepreneurs, evaluate the concept of risk and reward and understand the significance of small firms to the national economy.

To see all 16 that will be studied by the new cohort beginning in August, please check out the recently-published unit schedule here.
