'The Foundation Degree in Business and Enterprise helped me gain an understanding of how businesses are formed and run, expanding my knowledge of leadership styles and of the context beyond the operational figures. It equipped me well for my future career, developing my leadership and creativity. I also benefited from a range of facilities at Oxford Brookes University, such as the library.’ (Verah, Foundation Degree in Business and Enterprise)
