BA Degree in Business Administration: Entrepreneurship

Open University Validation as BA (Hons.) Business Administration: Entrepreneurship with Combined Studies

Richmond stands out from the crowd due to its commitment to academic excellence, its focus on business and the professions and its central London location.

The University's BA in Entrepreneurship combines the best elements of practical training in business, management and entrepreneurship with the very latest academic thinking within the field. Students graduating from Richmond's Entrepreneurship program will be ready to engage with a variety of activities such as the taking on and development of successful commercial projects for small, medium and large enterprises; or venturing out on their own successful commercial endeavors.

Please note that this is a recent major (programme) which we plan to have “designated” for Student Finance England purposes from the start of the 2014-15 academic year. Whilst it is highly unlikely that this will not be in place, if it were to be delayed for any reason, UK/EU Students intending to seek support from Student Finance England may have to enter the University, initially, on another major and will then be transferred automatically to BA Business Administration: Entrepreneurship as soon as it is recognised by SFE for student support purposes. We hope this won’t be necessary, but if so, because of the breadth and flexibility of the Richmond degree, in such cases students will still be able to study for the same courses (modules) as if they were registered for BA Business Administration: Entrepreneurship from the outset. Prospective students should still apply for their intended major.
