Vice Chancellor’s Inspiring Enterprise Week – For Students

All students were encouraged to take part in and give ideas for the Vice Chancellor’s Inspiring Enterprise Week. We had a number of planned events for students and the opportunity to create your own enterprising activity.

What do we mean by enterprise? Enterprise is not just about business.  It is a skillset which enables someone to spot a problem or identify a need, seize the opportunity and put their own ideas into practice. This includes skills such as creativity, innovation, opportunity recognition, networking, negotiation and commercial awareness. Enterprise is about more than simply having ideas: it is about the subsequent action and making those ideas happen.
