Enterprising?
Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Summary... header image

The programme provides a strong intellectual background for anyone thinking of working in culturally sensitive areas such as policing, social work, journalism, politics, research, care, health and justice agencies, support groups, prisons, charities, film or television.

Course Details header image

Crime, deviance, morality, conflict, censure and justice are combined with philosophy, history, cultural studies and a language to give an exceptional breadth and depth of perspective and context. It is a window on the world, one of insight into human diversity in complex societies, a textured view of our propensity to err, conflict, blame and punish.
