    Abstract

    This developmental paper explores staff perspectives of threshold concepts in the context of a newly developed, innovative undergraduate entrepreneurial business degree programme. It is intended that this work will form part of a future larger project exploring how students come to understand entrepreneurial business management using various frameworks and concepts, including the critical lens of threshold concepts, as tools for interpretation. Focusing on the individual student and the development of their competencies and behaviours, entrepreneurial business management is explored as a multi-disciplinary subject area applied in a work-based learning programme. There is a significant challenge inherent in the definition of threshold concepts in this context however the research could potentially unlock the language of entrepreneurialism and map its relationship to the concepts of graduateness and employability. This in turn has the potential to create a common discourse across the subject disciplines, creating dialogue and future learning value.
