What Will You Study

This exciting Undergraduate programme equips students with the knowledge and skills they will need to be more innovative and enterprising in their future careers. As well as gaining an understanding of key areas of business, students will also have an opportunity to practice their skills through a variety of challenges during their time on the programme

If you want to start your own business, work as an ‘intrapreneur’ and innovator in an existing company, take over a family business, or work in entrepreneurship and innovation-related fields (eg consulting, public support programmes), this is the right programme for you. Or maybe you are not quite sure of your future career, but you are looking for a degree programme that is different; a programme which will challenge you, that will grow your own confidence in being enterprising and entrepreneurial, and that will provide you with a portfolio of skills and knowledge which will open avenues to a wide range of graduate training career pathways

The programme is designed not only for those with prior qualifications in business related subjects, but is equally applicable to those with qualifications in other disciplines. We have a diverse range of students on our programme which promotes a more innovative culture for sharing ideas.

The programme emphasises theoretical rigour and practical learning. It benefits from the academic excellence and broad business networks provided by the School’s Department of Entrepreneurship, Strategy and Innovation. Several modules draw on our Entrepreneurs in Residence programme.

Lancaster is one of only three UK universities to have gained the Small Business Charter Gold Award, demonstrating the University’s exceptional dedication to helping improve links with and supporting the small business community. The undergraduate degree programme offers plenty of opportunity to network with successful entrepreneurs during curricular and extra-curricular events.
