What you'll learn

You'll not only gain an MSc in Entrepreneurship, you'll be supported to emerge as a founder of a high-growth digital business. Launchpad is a business incubation and development programme, helping you grow your expertise in markets, customers, investors, and how a business works.

You’ll put relevant business and management knowledge into practice, including finance, sales and marketing. Using reflective practice, you’ll explore project management techniques and build your leadership skills. And by looking into communication strategies in different media, you’ll get a better idea of your role in a team and develop your interpersonal skills.

Backing up your expertise, you’ll research modern business and management issues and practices, and evaluate information, business areas and working methods. Finally, you’ll analyse, evaluate and apply creative ideas, so you can come up with original solutions to complex problems.

Assessment Methods:

You’ll need to complete a series of academic assessments directly applied to your business. These include market research, a project plan and a business plan.
