Course summary

Course Overview

Are you thinking of starting your own business, interested in working for a high growth start-up or wanting to develop an entrepreneurial or innovative theme in your career? If so this Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management MSc has been designed to help you develop the specialist knowledge and capabilities that you will need in entrepreneurship and innovation.

If you are an aspiring entrepreneur who is interested in doing things differently and you have a keen interest in creative thinking and innovation, then MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management will give you the tools to succeed.

You may be a recent or experienced graduate within the field of business and management looking to expand your entrepreneurial knowledge. Perhaps you have ambitions to start your business but want to learn from the leading academics and research in the field.

On this Postgraduate Entrepreneurship Course, you will be a part of a diverse international cohort of students, giving you an invaluable opportunity to share experiences and discover new ideas with people from different cultural backgrounds whilst developing your cultural intelligence.

In the second year, you will have an opportunity to undertake an Industry Consultancy Project allowing you to apply the knowledge and skills you have gained during your first year of study to a real-life industry issue from a range of employers. This authentic learning context ensures that you experience what it feels like to work within a team on a contemporary project that has real relevance and impact. Working to a client's brief, with academic supervision, you will advance your ability to apply theoretical concepts and research skills to produce a practical recommendation to a challenging problem.*

You will learn about the principles, theories and practices used by entrepreneurial and innovative organisations. This includes frameworks for reviewing, reflecting, analysing and critiquing your own entrepreneurial mindset, intentions and potential ventures.

During this Entrepreneurship Management Master's you will be set entrepreneurship and innovation challenges to work on contemporary socio-economic problems identified in the local community, internationally and within the business community to achieve specified aims. You will learn how to work effectively within dynamic teams; how to adopt a design-ethos in problem solving; and how to lead entrepreneurially.

You will develop practical skills to promote creative thinking through practice-based elements in which real world problems are introduced for the testing of creative team-working techniques. Entrepreneurial skills will be combined with theory and an overview of the policy environment to equip you for a variety of employment options or for further research.

You will be prepared for employment in a variety of settings from self-employment, as part of a new venture, or as a motivated and valued entrepreneurial team member in a private business or public organisation.

Your Career

Overall, the course aims to develop you as an entrepreneur and manager, with a clear understanding of the theory and practice of entrepreneurship and innovation and how to create new business ventures. The course is designed to maximise the focus on entrepreneurship, including the development of your capabilities for teamwork and decision making.

To further enhance your employability, we offer the opportunity to undertake a master’s consultancy project as an alternative to the traditional dissertation. You’ll work in a small group, typically no more than five people, and tackle a live project from a host organisation under the mentorship of a member of our academic team. The project can be an excellent vehicle for you to relate theory to practice while developing transferable skills.
