Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Guidance
While no QAA Subject Benchmark exists for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, QAA guidance has been published. This programme follows the guidance in that it includes an emphasis on key theories of entrepreneurship in the economy and society as a subject discipline while further focusing on processes of identifying and developing new enterprise opportunities. The programme will further support students in developing their personal development in relation to subject-domain knowledge, personal skills development and independent learning. Furthermore, the programme meets QAA guidance through access to alumni, industry advisors and practical enterprise projects within the curriculum and through the Universities wider extra-curricular provision.

Programme specification:

There is a strong appetite amongst the student community for enterprise education opportunities and as many as one in three undergraduates at the University has aspirations to run their own business at some point in their careers. Having access to enterprise opportunities is an increasingly important deciding factor for students in their choice of university, and the University has seen a growing number of students applying because of a strong enterprise offering.
The degree emphasizes a conceptual, process-driven approach while foregrounding real-world experience through enterprise and sector engagement. It is delivered in a practical environment which enables students to take advantage of formal industry partnerships, such as those with Opera North and the West Yorkshire Playhouse. It also offers students the opportunity to get involved with the running and programming of stage@leeds. Other initiatives, such as the School of Performance and Cultural Industries’ Industry Advisory Panel, make the context in which to study a dynamic and exciting one for students with entrepreneurial aspirations.

Collaboration with the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies, part of the prestigious Leeds University Business School, provides a distinctive programme that ensures that students have access to the very best educational experience and support as they embark upon their studies. Students will study modules from the portfolio already offered by the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies, in addition to two modules created especially for “with Enterprise” degree programmes across the institution.

New with Enterprise programmes will form part of the campus-wide portfolio of activities and student education opportunities that support Enterprise at the University of Leeds. As a result, successful applicants undertaking this programme of study will benefit from opportunities to work with students engaged in enterprising activities from different disciplines, while further being able to access support and information from a range of related student services.
The inclusion of enterprise modules delivered in conjunction with the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies provides a distinctive flavour to this programme by developing student skills in the areas of creativity, business development and finance.
