Team Entrepreneurship - Teesside University

**Summary**: If you have the energy, drive and commitment required to set-up and run your own business, our innovative and pioneering new Team Entrepreneurship course can help you develop the knowledge and skills you need to achieve success. Note: International non-Tier 4 applicants can find out what qualifications they need by visiting Teesside University's website, but due to the type of course delivery and visa restrictions, Tier 4 international applications cannot be accepted. **Course details**: Inspired by the ground-breaking Finnish Team Academy approach and part of a growing international network, this programme is a new type of learning experience and one of only a handful of such courses to run in the UK. In the first few weeks you'll form a Team Company with other students, and work on real projects gaining invaluable experience. This course is not your typical degree. Your learning is largely based on practice and you receive guidance and support from business coaches, instead of lecturers. You direct your own learning and participate in team sessions, rather than attend lectures. Instead of examining case studies, you run a business and trade from the first year. You are not given a prescribed reading list – you tailor your own from a large menu of material. Although you still have to write essays, assessments also take place in more imaginative and dynamic ways. You learn how to find compromises in a team situation, take a leadership role at the appropriate time, communicate well with business leaders, peers and customers, understand the regional, national and international contexts for a business, and take initiative. Your learning is embedded through practice at every step. **After the course**: You graduate with diverse and exciting career options. This applied course prepares you for work in the same way a graduate development programme does, ensuring you'll be a confident, motivated and resilient graduate. Many students from Team Academy programmes start up businesses after they graduate and the remainder are able to exploit their wealth of business contacts and first-class employability skills.
