Programme Overview

Interested in creating your own entrepreneurial venture? Gain all the skills you need to run your own business with this programme which combines practical training in business with academic know-how.

Beginning with the principles of Business Management, you’ll consider how finance, socio-economic factors, politics, geography, language and culture all influence business. Like our other undergraduate programmes at Richmond, this BA is based on the American liberal arts tradition, which helps broaden perspective and develops practical skills which are highly appealing to future employers in a global economy.

Study entrepreneurship in action through electives such as Game Theory and Decision Making and Marketing Planning and Strategy which can help you kick-start a business.
You’ve also got the option of tailoring your study of entrepreneurship by taking minors from other leading academic disciplines.

Taught by lecturers who are experts in their field, this programme also features entrepreneurs as guest speakers, while visits to organisations and museums extend your perspective and creativity.

An internship which counts towards your degree is a fantastic opportunity to enhance your entrepreneurship skills and improve your career options.

What our students say

I feel honoured to be the first EDC Paris’ visiting student at Richmond University and I know I’ll keep this memory all my life. Orientation week was amazing and gave me the chance to meet many people from around the world. I learnt a lot in my classes at Richmond as well as during discussions with open-minded and interesting people whom I met with during events organised by the university.

Studying at Richmond provided me with an unique skill set to work in Project Management at EDF after completing my higher education.
