Teaching

  • HUA207 Business & Entrepreneurship

    This course gives students in Arts and Humanities an introduction to the theory and practice of setting up and running a small enterprise. Alongside the theory and practice of small business development, we will look at ideas about enterprise and entrepreneurship, including the `entrepreneurial mindset¿ and how this can be applied in a range of contexts to enhance lifelong employability. In part 1 of the module, students undertake an online business simulation game in small teams and prepare a written assignment based on their `experience¿ of setting up and running the business. Supporting lectures by guest entrepreneurs and the module coordinator introduce students to the real experience and practicalities of setting up a business. This covers key areas such as sales and marketing, employing staff, business structures and finance. In part 2, students will again work in teams to identify an idea for a new venture and develop a proposal to be presented to a panel of `experts¿. Reflection on this team assignment gives learners the opportunity to review their individual experience of project and to assess the outcomes in light of relevant theory.

In the more public world, to what extent are media key to providing knowledge and enabling the debate necessary to the practices of democracy? The course enables students to build on their own experiences of media as consumers and users.
