The present module entitled Entrepreneurship recognises that there are alternative, equally valid and rewarding futures available to our graduates in terms of self-employment. Starting an enterprise requires qualities which in some ways are different from those demanded of an employee. This module examines ‘entrepreneurialness’ from a number of perspectives; we look at enterprise in the modern business world in the context of organisations, self-employment and crucially enterprise within ourselves. We will learn about creativity, innovation, goal directed behaviour and risk-taking and discover that we already display many of these qualities. Alongside, we will also learn how an entrepreneur manages the knowledge circulaton within and outside his\her business.
