Business Innovation (Stage 1) 10 Credits, 1 Semester

In Stage 1 Business Innovation students begin to develop the knowledge, skills, and understandings to engage in business contexts in the modern world. It will allow students to engage in real life business problems and identify, design and test practical business solutions.
Students consider the opportunities and challenges associated with start-up and existing businesses in the modern, connected world. They consider how digital and emerging technologies may present opportunities to enhance business models and analyse the responsibilities and impact of proposed business models on global and local communities.

Stage 1 Business Innovation is studied through the following two key contexts:
· Start-up business
· Existing business

Students should provide evidence of their learning through four assessments:
· Assessment Type 1: Business Skills - two business skills tasks and one business model summary
· Assessment Type 2: Business Pitch
