BA in Business & Enterprise

Who should attend?

The fast-track degree in business and enterprise is designed to develop a greater understanding of business processes and business growth issues.

It is designed specifically for leaders and managers who want to develop their business know-how to greater levels, but with a practical application of strategies and tactics to improve their own business.

It is particularly suited to experienced managers because they can use their experience to enter directly into the third year of a degree programme, as well as be in a position to apply their learning directly. The programme is also suitable for managers who want to stretch their understanding of business issues to degree level, and who might be interested in the two year version.

Why should you attend?

Most managers realise they need to develop themselves before they can develop their business. By attending this programme you will gain a greater understanding of business models and growth issues; you will learn with and from managers from other industries and sectors and you will create time for yourself to analyse your business model over a sustained period, finding ways to achieve growth. You will also graduate with a BA in Business & Enterprise awarded by Edinburgh (Napier) University.

All training is delivered at the right level, in the right context and has practical application. Cohorts will comprise managers from different industries and sectors who will provide the right stimulus for learning and offer both challenge and inspiration to each other. You will work with this cohort for the duration of the programme (12 months)
