Course summary

Overview

This Masters in Social Enterprise helps to meet the ongoing challenges of commercial viability, innovation and sustainability. It’s a new and exciting course aimed at professionals working within social enterprises, advisors, officials, development officers and sector representatives. The course is also a good choice for anyone wishing to develop a career or an interest in social enterprise.

With a focus on the things that matter to social enterprises, you’ll learn how to deliver excellent service and high social value, build and maintain stakeholder support, secure funding, and measure and communicate success. These are set in the wider context in which social enterprises operate, including political, market and community contexts. With flexibility built into the course, you can opt to gain expertise in specific sectors or functional areas of business depending upon your own personal requirements or the needs of your organisation.

The MSc course offers opportunities to gain specialised expertise in key sectors such as health, social care, housing, education, sport, culture and the environment, or in key functional areas such as finance, HRM, marketing, public relations or operational management. The in-built flexibility of the course means that these aspects can be tailored to the needs of each individual student. Prior learning and experience will be fully assessed and accredited.

The course culminates with a supported project to conduct research and development within the social enterprise sector in Scotland and beyond. Students can exit at PG Cert and PG Dip awards.

Teaching

Delivery will be a mix of full day teaching and online resource support. Teaching days will be spread at regular intervals throughout each semester.

You’ll work with detailed case studies and input from industry representatives to provide a high-quality learning experience. This is further enhanced with a range of web-based resources to support and reinforce learning on the course.
