The Learning Innovation for Enterprise (LIFE) 1st year enterprise module blends applied, experiential activities with theory in four main areas of enterprise:
Big (Corporate) Enterprise ; Own Enterprise (Entrepreneurship) ; Small & Family Enterprise ; Social Enterprise
The LIFE programme was launched in September 2019 as part of DCU Business School’s redesigned first year curriculum. The programme is based around business in all its forms and entrepreneurship. All first year DCU Business School students complete the LIFE module and it’s an integral, foundational part of our curriculum.
Students learn the A-Z of business in all its forms through Hackathons, online learning, conference seminars, applied projects, reflective writing and through getting out there and hearing directly from businesses. Over the course of one year, students understand and experience entrepreneurship as it applies to multiple business situations, including family businesses, startups and social enterprises, right through to large corporations.
