Course Overview

In an unpredictable world, innovative minds have the edge. Thinking and acting entrepreneurially is as valuable in a large organisation as it is to a new venture. Both leading companies and start-ups must develop new ideas, products and services that create value. That’s why they look for graduates with an entrepreneurial mindset, someone comfortable with change and challenge.

Entrepreneurs are trailblazers who relish the challenge of change. Connecting the needs for profitability with an understanding of the increasing pressures that the world is facing, the entrepreneurs of tomorrow will be those who are able to identify new opportunities that create value for customers, society and business. Do you want to feel empowered to make things happen, to be resilient to change? This could be the right degree for you.

This is no typical management programme. We are at the forefront of entrepreneurial education, drawing on world-leading theories. We cover creativity, opportunity recognition, sales, finance, entrepreneurial leadership and effective communication. You will choose from Management School topics such as Accounting and Finance, Economics, Marketing and Management Science.

We’ll look at business model innovation, and you will take on real world challenges in sales, networking and innovation. Our 50 entrepreneurs-in-residence act as sounding boards for your ideas, participate in your lectures and have regular working lunches with students. Our focus is on practice, skills and understanding. You will be asked to come up with ideas, gather resources and deliver solutions that meet customers’ needs.

This degree helps you understand the complexities of the real world and how to do business within it. Whether you join a graduate programme with a bank or start your own business, this degree gives you the tools to succeed.

Course Structure

Many of Lancaster's degree programmes are flexible, offering students the opportunity to cover a wide selection of subject areas to complement their main specialism. You will be able to study a range of modules, some examples of which are listed below.

Year 3

    Optional

Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster visit our Teaching and Learning section.

Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
