What university degree will help me run my own business

It has always been my objective to start my own business in hospitality. People who own their own resturant tell me that a degree is not necessary or that it does not matter what course I do. I want to obtain a recognised degree while learning some skills that will help me reach my goal.

Hi Nina,

It is true that you don't have to have formal qualifications to start many types of businesses, however, having knowledges and/or experience of a particular industry can be very beneficial.

There are loads of Hospitality courses available, and it may be possible to combine them with the likes of Business Studies.

You may find the information on the UCAS and learndirect websites of use:
