Business Management (Innovation & Entrepreneurship)

Course Introduction

Our innovation pathway allows you to shape your studies towards your career ambitions, and develop your personal and professional knowledge, skills and competence to support companies to innovate their products and services for the 21st century.

**Why study BA Business Management (Innovation and Entrepreneurship) at Middlesex University?**

Tailored towards ambitious students who are keen to apply theory to practice in a business environment, you will learn how organisations operate from developing strategy to styles of management. Supported by academics who bring professional expertise to their teaching practices, there is a strong practical emphasis firmly based on relevant theories and you will study the key functions that underpin business success and build specialist knowledge of innovation (focused on developing systems, products and services).

Work placements are an invaluable opportunity to gain employability skills and develop your business knowledge so we have introduced two options by which you can integrate into your time at Middlesex. Those who wish to do a placement can take either a 36 week sandwich placement in Year 3 as part of a 4 year degree or two 18 week summer placements allowing you to complete your degree within 3 years.

You will graduate with the skills and confidence to support companies to engage in technological changes to improve business performance. The career options are broad with our Business Management (Innovation) pathway. You will be well placed to enter a wide range of businesses, governmental and third sector organisations, and will have the specialist knowledge and skills needed to start up, manage and grow your own viable business.
