Overview

This module aims to help you to critically evaluate and identify your personal and business objectives when it comes to new venture creation. You will have the opportunity to critically reflect upon your values, goals and motivations to help develop your confidence to take entrepreneurial actions.

Course detail

The sessions will help you to assess your entrepreneurial capabilities and skills as well as developing a learning map to summarise and plan your entrepreneurial development. This will be achieved through a series of individual and group based tasks that centre of idea generation, evaluation and implementation.

How will this course be taught

You will be guided and supported by staff who are passionate about the subjects they research and teach. We have experts across a whole range of disciplines including business, engineering, communications, English, media, emerging technology, sustainability, health, and psychology.
The classes draw on the latest information and research, are interactive, and focus on developing your knowledge and English language skills (if necessary). The academic sessions are interactive and allow you to learn from different perspectives.

Our courses are based on four principles:

  • course content from leading academics and industry experts;
  • industry specific fieldtrips which will be embedded into the programmes;
  • cultural and social activities allowing development of transferable skills;
  • pastoral care and ongoing support throughout the programme.

After successful completion of your course(s) you will receive an official Coventry University transcript with individual grades for each course* and a certificate of attendance. The certificate of attendance is presented in the last week of your coursework and the transcript will be sent to you or your home university in September.
