ENTREPRENEURIAL BUSINESS PLANNING

BUA5EBP

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Innovation is the engine that drives economic growth and improvements in living standards, but there is little that is spontaneous about the process that turns an idea into a concept and a concept into a proposal. Students will find and analyse cases of innovation and present their conclusions. Students will be introduced to a systematic way of developing convincing business plans that will become a focus of attraction for both the finance and the people needed to turn a concept into reality. Entrepreneurs leading teams create innovations, and so a team assignment will form a major part of the workload and assessment.
