Building a Business

Business lecture

Building a Business covers basic business principals and introduces the key concepts of starting a business.

The Building a Business lecture series provides basic business skills to those who would like to start a business, as well as those with an existing early stage business who are seeking to develop and enhance their skills. It is not aimed at established entrepreneurs or businesses; the lecture content is aimed at people who have limited prior knowledge of business practice.

Please note that Building a Business 2017 was the last in the series and from now on the course materials will only be available online.
