2. Rationale for the module and its links with other modules
As the world’s economies develop and prosper, the
integration of economies will see a continuation
and intensification of changes in
company management, as creativity and innovation skills become more
dominant forces in the struggle to maintain market sh
are. The entrepreneur is likely to play a more
significant part in the growth and development of na
tional economies. In addition, the model of social
entrepreneurship as the embedded sustainability pers
pective is used to question current and future
roles of entrepreneurs. This module provides st
udents with another crucial component in their
understanding of global business, leading on from
the level 5 module Managing New Ventures. There
are thematic links with the stra
tegy, management, and HR modules.
3. Aims of the module
This module examines the foundations, theory and scop
e of entrepreneurship, and identifies significant
entrepreneurial trends in the global

Social responsibility is
an important component of this mo
dule, and students will evaluate th
e impact of models of social
entrepreneurship on fulfilling societ
al and ethical concerns in the modern era. Overall, upon successful
completion, students will be able to critically analys
e and comment with regards to the characteristics of
the entrepreneur, the impact of social entrepreneur
ship, finally linking up with management of family-
