Want to know more about enterprise? Want to find out what takes to be an entrepreneur? Got a business idea and need some guidance, or not quite sure where to start? Join our online summer school course which will help you develop your knowledge about what it takes to be enterprising and how to develop your skills.

You don’t necessarily have to have a business idea but it will inspire you, develop your commercial awareness skills and take you through the idea generation process. It is entirely online, you are free to complete the course over 2 weeks at the end of August whenever suits you best!

Whether you’ve recently graduated or are looking to build your skills in preparation for another year at university, it’s a great opportunity to gain experience you can add to your CV – all in just a couple of days’ work.

The programme covers the basics of entrepreneurship, including ideas generation, how to assess your ideas, legal structures and the importance of enterprise to the UK. On each day you will have a lesson, which will take about two hours to complete, followed by a small task and a reflective blog. By the end of the course, as if by magic, you will have produced a Business Model Canvas.

Upon successful completion you will gain a certificate from USE and don’t forget, it counts towards both HEAR and the Sheffield Graduate Award.

Want something that will make you stand out from the crowd? Need commercial awareness skills? Want to enhance your CV? The Universities Business Challenge Competition will allow you to develop your enterprise skills, ideal for when you graduate. This year, University of Sheffield Enterprise is entering five teams in the Universities Business Challenge. If you’re a dedicated undergraduate student and you want to be in one of those teams, you must come to this selection event first. Come and see if you have what it takes to be picked for a Universities Business Challenge team.

If you come to this event and are selected for one of the three teams, you will have to meet once a week for six weeks to complete a series of decisions based upon a fictitious business which you will be running. This competition is great for your employability as it will allow you to develop commercial awareness as well as connect with graduate employers to see what they are looking for in their graduate programme employees. The event is open to all University of Sheffield Undergraduates, from any discipline (not just business and management). Please note, you also must be avalaible for both semesters during 2017-18.
