New Venture Creation and Business Planning (ENT) (N1508)
15 credits, Level 6
You are given a systematic understanding of the process of new venture creation in the private, public, and not for profit sectors.

In this module conceptual foundations are matched with practical training to enable you to formulate and explore entrepreneurial ideas and opportunities through the development of business plans.
