The Business Enterprise Development (Hons) programme from Aston University aims to give you the best start to learning about how to develop, sustain and grow a business. It has been adapted by the globally renowned Team Academy model of entrepreneurship education from Finland, and built on the following principles:

  • Develop your entrepreneurial capacity and mindset through learning-by-doing.
  • Experience the development of a real business that you own with a team of others.
  • Determine your own learning focus and needs, supported by team coaches who are there to guide and help you develop.

How you’ll study

This course has been designed to equip you with the skills, competencies and attitudes to enhance both your entrepreneurial mindset and leadership capabilities. You may be interested in setting up your own enterprise or want to lead the development and success of established organisations.

This programme is constructed around you working in a team and running your own enterprise. Your learning is developed through team coaching processes rather than taught or lecture-based inputs. Learning opportunities and assessments are built around three key pillars:

  • Enterprise management and growth.
  • Team performance and leadership.
  • Innovation and entrepreneurialism.

Career prospects

No other course develops the skills, attributes and competencies necessary to thrive in the modern enterprise environment like this programme. It will give you the confidence, resilience and experience to lead, manage or set up your own business, or to take your future in whatever direction you want.

This is a new approach to learning and collaboration which is more aligned to the working world. You will gain real-life experience and will be able to draw on real examples in interviews of what you have achieved rather than learnt.
