Business Management at Bath Spa University

From the seed of an idea to a fully-fledged business, entrepreneurship is at the centre of this hands-on Business and Management course

  • Discover the inner workings of businesses and prepare for a career in a variety of sectors.
  • Practically-focused course centred on devising and pitching concepts and developing fundraising strategies.
  • Choose either a ten-month or ten-week work placement and apply what you’ve learned in the real world.


Do you have an idea for the next big thing? Or are you looking to start your own business? This Business and Management course will give you the skills to develop, grow and flourish as an entrepreneur by building your concept from the ground up.

We’ll teach you core business values within this practically-focused pathway and provide you with chances to get first-hand, real-life experience. We’ll empower you to develop your entrepreneurial flair whilst giving you a thorough grounding in business theory and practice. You’ll work on fundraising and pitching skills and be encouraged to have your own creative thoughts about business opportunities.

By working with our enterprise team at Bath Spa, as well as within the new “incubator space” at EMERGE, you’ll be part of the University’s creative business hub and learn from other students across the course and from wider degree programmes.
