    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 future venture 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 and help you to start documenting your thoughts in a structured business plan while allowing you to share your ideas with others.

    This course is the first in a series of six about ‘starting a business’.

    What topics will you cover?
    • The entrepreneurial learning cycle
    • The opportunity business model: the importance of sharing your vision
    • Vision and opportunity in successful businesses
    • Writing a core value proposition
    • Introduction to writing a robust business plan.

    This course is part of the Going to University collection which has been specifically designed for students at schools and colleges. They provide a taster of undergraduate study at the University of Leeds and help students to decide which subject to study at university.

    Completion of the courses will also enhance students’ university applications.

    The courses can also be used as a teachers’ classroom enrichment resource.

    Courses in this collection are also great for people that want an introduction in the specific subjects discussed in each course.
