Beating the odds: How to become an entrepreneur

You need only look at social media to see how attractive entrepreneurship is as a career path to young people today. Every day there are new Instagram pages, TikTok accounts, and YouTube channels selling both the lifestyle and the skill set of successful social entrepreneurs. 

But does one become an entrepreneur? The Business Management (Enterprise) BSc could be the answer.

An increasingly popular choice
Recent University research found that 61% of students surveyed were either ‘considering entrepreneurship’ (21%) or actively wanting to become entrepreneurs (40%) after graduation, compared to just 5% who wanted to become employees, or 19% who were ‘considering employment’.

Statistics such as these show the changing goals of young people today, with a focus on independence and financial freedom being the key drivers in their career choices.

What we offer
The University of Bolton offers a specialism in Enterprise as part of our Business Management BSc degree course. With an emphasis on building the skills and professional networks necessary, the expert-led entrepreneurship course is a fresh, exciting, and innovative way to learn about how to achieve future success.

What people want
60% of new businesses (according to Durham City Incubator) and 90% of start-ups (Forbes UK) fail in the first three years. This is why getting the right start is so important.

The University of Bolton’s specialism in enterprise offers you the chance to develop your skills and ensure that when you try, you’re equipped with the knowledge and tools you need to succeed. It’s for courses like this that we have ranked #1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction (Complete University Guide 2021, 2020, 2019), and why we also rank #5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020).

If you want to head out on your own and build a successful businesxs, or be in a rewarding role supported by an excellent salary, the Business Management (Enterprise) BSc could be the course for you. If you want to make something of yourself in the field of entrepreneurship, read the course information page.
