Lecturer in International Entrepreneurship and MarketingManagement Science and Entrepreneurship Group, Essex Business School
Our undergraduate degree programmes in business, marketing and entrepreneurship here at Essex Business School Southend are a unique combination of practical SME and start-up case studies and in depth marketing and business principles which can set you up for a variety of careers, such as an entrepreneur or management and marketing consultant. You will explore the pitfalls of starting and expanding a business and how to manage a business or marketing strategy through a period of change to provide you with an edge in the graduate job market. You are taught by academics who are leaders in their field, who will support and challenge you to develop you as a critical thinker. This is probably the biggest difference between the way you study at school or college and a university level education at Essex Business School. We will encourage you to become an independent thinker who can confidently put an argument forward by engaging in work that allows you to apply, discuss and critique management and marketing in theory and in practice.
