Course summary

The MSc Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship course has been designed for individuals with an entrepreneurial mind-set. It is open to students from any academic discipline who are looking to set up their own business, become future entrepreneurs or those looking to take over their family business. This course combines rigorous academic theory with the practical skills, hands-on experience and valuable networks you need to make your business a success.

The course is designed to stimulate the entrepreneurial ethos of individuals and develop their skills and capabilities to lead and direct start-ups. Study throughout your first two semesters will immerse you in an entrepreneur's journey and introduce you to the networks and investment opportunities you will need to get your ideas off the ground. This will culminate in a large-scale final project.

In your final semester you’ll undertake the Business Model and Entrepreneurship Project, which enables you to kick-start your venture and find opportunities to finance for growing it to a sustainable one.

What you’ll gain from this degree?

  • through the Business Model and Entrepreneurship Project you will have the opportunity to set up and establish your own enterprise and be mentored by experts in the field, or perhaps develop ideas for a family business with which you are involved already. You will have the opportunity to pitch directly to venture capital investors and business angels with the opportunity to raise funding or further collaborations.
  • during the course your professional and business networks will be enriched by an international experience, following a ‘young’ entrepreneurial firm, experiencing directly the entrepreneurial journey.
  • the course provides you a unique seed fund and access to the entrepreneurial community, presenting you with connections to experts, entrepreneurs, business angels and capitalists.
  • all Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship students at Nottingham Business School will have access to The Hive, a purpose built centre dedicated to helping turn business ideas into reality.
  • develop management skills to explore new venture opportunities and advance participants’ ideas to feasible enterprises.

Careers and employability

You’ll develop a wide range of skills and abilities, enhancing your entrepreneurial skills and therefore your employability. You’ll be able to:

  • become an entrepreneur starting your own venture
  • identify career opportunities towards an entrepreneurial role
  • develop the skills to gain accelerated promotion in your chosen profession
  • lead change as an entrepreneur inside a larger organisation
  • carry out consultancy work in a wide range of sectors, e.g. manufacturing, services, retailing
  • advise other entrepreneurs
  • undertake further study within the field of entrepreneurship.

From the last cohort three students have set up their own businesses, one student is employed in Switzerland and the remaining students are taking over areas within their family businesses.
