About this program

BSc (Hons) Business Computing and Entrepreneurship - Part time

Learn how to design, develop, and deploy software systems for business, whilst also developing skills in enterprise computing, business modelling, and digital entrepreneurship.

This degree provides you with a deep understanding of the concepts and techniques involved in developing and managing businesses in digital domains. You will learn key computing skills such as programming, full-stack web development, and network administration, alongside entrepreneurial skills like statistics, business modelling, project management, marketing, and venture creation.

We will be making some changes to the way our programmes will be delivered in 2021-22 to ensure we continue to respond to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. All programmes will be delivered in-person on campus with some specific sessions within each programme being delivered online in a pre-recorded format. Where necessary, changes will also be made to assessment formats.

All changes will be considered through the College's established processes to assure the quality of each programme. Approved changes to programmes will be published to the programme changes page.
