Why should you study this course in Organisational Behaviour and Entrepreneurship?

The programme will introduce the critical areas of entrepreneurship and help students understand the contribution of creativity within work-related contexts. This programme comprises 30 ECTS and is being offered as a Minor Award. It will supplement existing academic and professional learning among graduates who seek to understand and use entrepreneurship theories and creativity practices. 

The key aims of the course in Organisational Behaviour and Entrepreneurship are to:

  • Provide an introductory postgraduate qualification in entrepreneurship for graduates who work (or seek to work in) professional work-related leadership or management roles where entrepreneurship skills are critical for the organisation's success.
  • Support learners in achieving the ability to engage in a comprehensive theoretical discourse and understanding of the key principles of entrepreneurship.
  • Critically appraise entrepreneurship theories, models, etc, as applied to work contexts.
  • Support graduates in developing and applying theoretical knowledge related to creativity to work-related contexts.
  • Provide access routes to appropriate higher education for participants to specialise in based on their current professional needs, individual professional interests, and/or career orientation.
  • Graduates are expected to be able to critically evaluate the conceptual and theoretical basis for applying entrepreneurial competencies. The programme, therefore, addresses the needs of graduates who wish to develop their professional competence in these contexts. 
  • Facilitate students to develop personal and professional capacity and collaborative problem-solving competencies underpinned by evidence-based practice and reflection.

Course Details

Module Outline

The module aims to facilitate students to explore and critically evaluate knowledge of the principles of organisational psychology so as to better understand the role of individuals within organisational contexts, the psychology of organisational environments and the role of organisational psychology in facilitating an understanding of organisational life.

The aim of this module is to support learners to acquire knowledge of the theoretical basis to understand entrepreneurship. Learners will also focus on the theoretical basis for entrepreneurial concepts and approaches over the period of the module. Emphasis will be placed on the psychology of entrepreneurship, focusing on cognition, affect and personality research anchored in current neuroscientific findings. 

Additionally, students will display the capacity to distinguish concepts (e.g., differences between enterprise and entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship, etc.) and gain advanced insight into a range of entrepreneurial capacities, including feasibility analysis, resourcing contingency, and skills and attitudes associated with entrepreneurship in diverse working environments. The module will, therefore, explore contemporary discourses with the study of entrepreneurship that will broadly correspond with basic psychological domains.

This module aims to support learners in appreciating the value of creativity and innovation within work-related contexts. Over the course of the module, it will focus on the theoretical basis for work-related innovation and creative approaches.

Both creativity and innovation are central to entrepreneurial activity and business initiation, development and sustaining viable businesses. This module takes an in-depth look at the whole area from a leadership and management perspective. It will critically evaluate the role of creativity and innovation in an organisational setting, providing learners with key skill knowledge and approaches that can be utilised within their respective workplaces.
