Starting a Business 1: Vision and Opportunity – Course Content
A successful business starts with a clear vision and a thorough understanding of the opportunities available to turn that vision into a reality. Whether you have an idea for a venture in the future or you already have a side-line business whilst studying, this course will help you consider your vision and explore the opportunities available. It will give you the time to plan, share your ideas with others and start to document your thoughts in a structured business plan.
Throughout the course you will join a community of online learners, providing an opportunity for interactive learning with other students both in the UK and internationally.
No previous knowledge or experience of business or enterprise is required, just an interest in businesses and how they emerge.
