Description The Entrepreneurial Project module will enable students to undertake an in-depth entrepreneurial project focused on the student's aspirations. Students will undertake a project focused on their own organisation, an intrapreneurship project (a novel development in a larger organisation) or an entrepreneurial project collaboratively developed with an organisation or mentor supported by UoB and BBS.

An Entrepreneurial Project provides students with the experience of developing a proposition while reflecting on the responsible business, entrepreneurship and innovation literature, confronting the tensions of theory meeting real world practice.

This 40-credit module together with the Purposeful Leader 20-credits make up the required 60-credits of independent learning based on student research required within the MBA programme.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Design a proposition which accounts for the business cultural, social,¬†economic¬†and political context.
  • Apply qualitative and quantitative data analysis to inform the decision making for a business plan.
  • Search for relevant sources, critically evaluate and synthesise material and/or data to develop a persuasive proposition.
  • Critically reflect and to have a reflexive practice to evaluate one's own beliefs, judgments, and practices.
  • Communicate the proposition clearly effectively.
  • Discuss how to promote an ethical, inclusive, innovative and supportive culture and business practices to generate continuous business improvement for a sustainable future.
