How do I go about setting up my own business?
How get I get noticed by the right employers?
These are some questions and thoughts that some students will think to themselves whilst studying towards their degree. Luckily a number of opportunities, organisations and student led societies linked with the Worcester Business School offer a number of number of ways to gather this experience you need, do the networking you require, give you the info that you want or the platform to launch your business with.
The best part of this is that these opportunities are available to all students, not just those in the Business School.
The Business Incubator is an office at City Campus which students can use as a registered place of business to launch their own organisations from whilst studying. The office has computers, dedicated phone lines, a printer / photocopier and kitchen facilities; all resources needed when launching your first business organisation!
