This course offers all students the option of a one-year paid work placement, to boost your employability even further. If you choose this route, you will take the placement following year two of your course, and then return to complete your degree.

Why take a placement?

A placement year is the perfect opportunity to gain valuable work experience, to build on the career skills we will teach you on this degree. The connections you make on the placement will improve your career prospects further, and equip you with the skills you need to secure graduate-level employment.

How we support you

The University's Placement and Work Experience Team are experts at helping you to secure a placement. They will work closely with you from the start, helping you research potential employers, discover placement opportunities, create and pitch your CV, and will coach you to perform well in interviews. We aren't able to guarantee a placement, but our sector-leading advisors will give you the best possible chance of securing one.

Find out more about how we'll support you

We understand that your plans might change once you start your programme. If you decide not to do a placement, you will have the option of completing the three year version of your programme.

Whatever your choice, you will have access to many opportunities for work experience through our Placement and Work Experience Team, and access to face-to-face and 24/7 online careers support.

Skills

Make an impact with the professional business skills that matter most to employers.

You'll gain in-depth knowledge of organisations and their environments, while learning to manage innovation and developing your own entrepreneurial skills. 

With our BSc Business Management and Entrepreneurship, you explore key concepts, such as:

  • Managing people, operations, logistics, marketing and finance
  • Learning about corporate strategy and business ethics
  • How small businesses and start-ups need to operate in a competitive business environment

You'll practise your entrepreneurship in a real-world context and acquire high-level business planning skills, critical to successful entrepreneurship. You will also have the opportunity to explore both the theory and practice of entrepreneurship, learning more about your own style and skills, and how to bring those abilities out in others. 

You will finish the course with a deep appreciation of the entrepreneurial process, and the skills to drive innovation and adapt to change. 

Accredited programme

Please note: this course is dual accredited to a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) qualification. Students who complete the whole programme will be eligible for a CMI Level 5 qualification in Management and Leadership (subject to passing the required mapped CMI modules and CMI moderation).

Our faculty of academic experts and working professionals will guide you through a blended mix of:

  • Lectures

As our courses are taught over no more than three days per week, you’ll have the flexibility to take on paid part-time work, placements, or internships – gaining real-world experience before you graduate.

We apply world-leading research and the latest thinking to your studies to help you develop a global mindset. You can also gain international experience through an optional semester abroad, with Roehampton Abroad scholarships of up to £1,000 available to help with the cost.

Assessment

Benefit from assessments that prepare you for life beyond university. 

You'll be assessed using a wide range of theory and practical assessments that replicate the world of business today. This includes coursework, reports, exams (on Accountancy and Finance modules only) and online tests.

Other types of assessments include portfolio evaluation, case studies, critical poster, consultancy projects and using the Bloomberg terminal to track performance of a live asset.

All of these methods will help you demonstrate the breath and knowledge you've learnt.

Between Years 2 and 3, you can choose to enhance your practical work experience by applying for a year-long paid professional placement.
