The Module combines theoretical approaches to entrepreneurial skill and knowledge development with application to a specific individually negotiated situation in which students develop an entrepreneurial solution to an identified problem or opportunity.
The Module enables students to develop knowledge of entrepreneurship as it applies within the cultural and creative domains, including, for example notions of intrapreneurship, and its application to possible contexts beyond. The relevant context for this Module is normally outside the School and may be outside the University. Working with the tutor, students will identify a context within which they will have the opportunity to practice their entrepreneurial skills and apply their entrepreneurial knowledge. Examples might include managing and marketing creative events, developing creative projects for in community and educational contexts and using creative/performance skills and understanding to meet needs of external partners.
Using the Module's theoretical material on entrepreneurship and on learning through entrepreneurial activity, students will assess both the entrepreneurial solution and their own performance within the given context. It is possible that students will be able to work in small teams.
