I do enjoy working with the young students at the University of Buckingham Business School. They are studying for honours degrees in Business Enterprise, whilst also developing, establishing and running their own businesses. See http://www.buckingham.ac.uk/business/bbe.
The students work hard, as not only do they have to study and run their businesses, but they have only two years to achieve their honours degrees! No long holidays, plus coursework and exams every 6 months.
The second year students are deeply involved in running their businesses, whereas the first years are completing their business plans in preparation to “pitch” for their “seed-corn” capital on 30th May 2008.
It will be interesting to see how all the students’ businesses develop.
