Enterprise and Entrepreneurship - Coventry University

The course is focused around the concept of ‘value creation’ and the activity of transforming purposeful ideas into action, thus generating value for someone other than yourself. The value created can be social, cultural or economic. The course is a mixture of theory and practice. We aim to teach you about the theory of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial practice and complete a research dissertation. You will also have the opportunity to be exposed to the skills and knowledge needed for entrepreneurship with guided individual and group projects, and through the analysis of real case studies. Innovatively, you will also have the opportunity to learn through your own actions on self-directed negotiated projects such as venture creation and consultancy activities. The teaching team is made up of enthusiastic educators who are also active researchers in enterprise education and entrepreneurship-related topics. We regularly share our practice innovations and have given research presentations at conferences such as the International Entrepreneurship Educators Conference and the Institute of Small Business and Entrepreneurship Conference. Members of the team have contributed to national policy in enterprise and entrepreneurship education, while others have run their own businesses and bring real-life experiences to inform your learning. Coventry University is one of a select group of universities to be awarded the prestigious Times Higher Education Entrepreneurial University of the Year Award (2011). The University was also commended in the recent Teaching Excellent Framework exercise for its outstanding focus on employability and developing entrepreneurship skills that are highly valued by employers.
