Summary

If you have a HND/DipHE qualification, this programme allows you top up your qualifications to a full degree, giving you access to more graduate career opportunities.

This one-year top up programme is designed to provide a firm understanding of business management and entrepreneurship. It will equip you with the skills you need for a successful career in business.

This top-up degree is designed specifically to develop you as a 'business ready' graduate: a confident, independent thinker with a detailed knowledge of business management and entrepreneurship, and equipped with the skills to adapt rapidly to change.

Exploring key concepts such as managing people, operations, logistics, marketing and finance, you will also learn about corporate strategy, business ethics and how small businesses and start-ups need to operate in a competitive business environment.

In readiness for your future career, you will acquire key attributes employers value, such as commercial acumen, self-reflection and emotional intelligence, alongside skills in research, analysis, numeracy and project management.

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

This programme is open for all students in the UK and overseas who wish to transfer to complete the final year of an undergraduate degree, as well as students who have completed study at one of Roehampton's partner institutions.

The programme commences with an extended introduction to academic study, to ensure that you have the academic skills you need to succeed. 

Year 1

  • 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.
  • Look at innovation, and gain an understanding of the approaches used to encourage it within an organisation.
  • Undertake a dissertation on an entrepreneurial topic of your choice.

You will be in a strong position to start your own business. You could also work in business development or a graduate traineeship, or in any sector that seeks dynamic, creative individuals with proven business knowledge.

Our careers team is available to support you from the start of your studies until after you graduate. They will help you build your CV, prepare for interviews, and meet and learn from successful graduates working at the top of their careers. You’ll also have opportunities to work with our partners across London and beyond, and to attend a Roehampton jobs fair where you can find out about graduate opportunities and meet employers.
