The final project is compulsory for the entrepreneurship programme and is the final element of the programme so should represent the culmination of learning; It allows students to concentrate on topics that are of particular interest to them and it draws upon a range of different aspects of the programme taught. It also gives the student an opportunity to work independently with individual supervision. The final project can take 2 different forms as follows: Business Plan- starts with an original business idea by the student and provides an opportunity to develop the idea through a process of research into a clearly defined business plan. Consulting Project- starts with identifying a corporate sponsor with whom a consulting brief will be agreed with the academic supervisor. It may be based on a problem or opportunity identified by the corporate sponsor and involves a research-based solution to explore and develop the topic with milestones and objectives agreed for the delivery of the project.
