Creating and Developing Your Business
It's a unique opportunity. Think about it: a chance to spend a year developing your business idea - maybe even go 'live' -; a supportive environment in which you can share thoughts and ideas with others who are going through a similar experience; ready access to advice and support from people with the practical expertise and knowledge that is so vital to the successful launch of a business. All this, plus the added bonus of gaining a recognised postgraduate qualification at the same time! The full-time MA in Creating and Developing Your Business consists of six taught modules designed to cover all the main aspects of establishing and running a successful business, and a project/ dissertation, which gives you an opportunity to apply what you have learned to your own business idea. The programme is normally completed in one calendar year over three trimesters. There is currently one entry point - in October of each year - with additional entry points planned to come on line as the programme grows and develops. All taught modules are worth either 15 or 30 credits. You will also need to complete a dissertation of 15,000- 20,000 words, which is worth 60 credits. To achieve the MA, you will need to complete 180 credits in total.
