Enterprise Education

How can you learn about enterprise?

Accredited study modules and programmes at Northumbria University can help you better understand small business enterprise. Some undergraduate enterprise modules are ‘generic’ – intended to be studied by students from any discipline background. Some are discipline specific, targeted at students from particular discipline backgrounds. Enterprise is also taught as complete programmes at postgraduate level. These are targeted at students from particular discipline backgrounds. Individual modules are available to all full and part-time students, researchers and associates registered at Northumbria University.  


Modules and Programmes

Three kinds of study module are available. Individual modules can be attended either as embedded elements of overall course programmes or through independent study. Wherever possible an action learning approach is taken with practitioner participation by entrepreneurs and business advisors from outside the university to provide real work input to developing skills for entrepreneurial life.

Learners cover all key aspects of creating and managing a small business through initiating and trading a business in teams. The module is open to students of any discipline and from any of the academic schools at Northumbria University.


  • 2 Specialist Enterprise Pathways

A variety of enterprise related modules and study activities are available to extend study of enterprise into specialist discipline areas. The availability of these varies between semesters and between academic schools.
