Team Entrepreneurship (2 year Accelerated) - Teesside University

**Note: International non-Tier 4 applicants can find out what qualifications they need for entry 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 overview**: If you have the energy, drive and commitment required to set-up and run your own business, our innovative and pioneering 2 year full-time accelerated BA (Hons) Team Entrepreneurship can help you develop the knowledge and skills you need to achieve success. In addition to offering a saving on tuition fees, you also benefit from a year without paying any maintenance costs. The course is for budding entrepreneurs who are keen to develop and grow a business or multiple businesses. It allows you, as an enterprising student, to gain a full academic degree qualification whilst also developing key business skills. 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 learn by doing. Inspired by the groundbreaking 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 form a Team Company with other students, and work on real projects gaining invaluable experience. You’re 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 show initiative. Your learning is embedded through practice at every step. This degree is very practical so placements are not a necessary part of the course. However some of the practical work is based on solving practical business problems faced by local businesses. With dual accreditation at Teesside University, as well as the degree you will receive a Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the chartered professional body for management and leadership. Dual accreditation means you will automatically receive a second professional qualification upon successful completion of your programme. By adding this CMI qualification to your University qualification, you’re really on the road to success. • You instantly become more employable when you receive a CMI professional qualification that is industry-recognised • You will gain access to exclusive CMI networking events • You will have the opportunity to attend lecturers from top level CMI industry-expert members • CMI’s qualifications sit on the RQF framework and are recognised by the European Credit Framework • CMI qualifications fast-track students into the next stage of training to become Chartered Managers • During your students you will become a CMI Affiliate member, giving you a host of additional benefits to support your development and employability. **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.
