Entrepreneurial Skills

Unit code: MCEL10002
Level: 1
Semester: 2
Credits: 10

This unit has been specifically designed to simulate the processes that entrepreneurs go through when researching and presenting a potential business opportunity to potential investors (as seen on the BBC programme Dragons’ Den).

Students will be expected to develop an idea (either for a product or a service) which has potential commercial value. The idea will be generated through creative techniques learnt within the lecture room environment; then through a step-by-step approach looking at all aspects of the commercialisation for the idea a shortened Business Plan will be developed which will then be pitched to a potential panel of investors. Students will finally be asked to reflect on the developmental process for their chosen idea.
