If you are looking to develop your own start-up, launch the next big digital platform, grow an existing family business, use innovation as a catalyst for change in a multinational organisation, or create a social enterprise to have the maximum positive impact, then this course is for you.
Our new MSc in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management will give you both the theoretical understanding of the latest start-up and tech thinking, as well as the practical skills to navigate a complex future and lead accelerated business growth. The programme is designed to craft your business skills to enable you to manage uncertainty, develop robust initiatives, and lead accelerated business growth in your chosen venture.
You will learn from professionals and practitioners who have experience across the spectrum of entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as leading academics who will integrate the latest research and thinking into their teaching.
We will not only equip you with fundamental business skills, but also expose you to new ideas, ways of working, and the tools and frameworks that are essential to being an entrepreneur in the ‘age of acceleration’.
Incorporating practical activities, including hackathons, design sprints, and live business cases, you will develop your entrepreneurial skills and learn first-hand how to adapt and manage innovation.
The programme is divided into units of study called modules which are assigned a number of 'credits'. The credit rating of a module is proportional to the total workload, with 1 credit being nominally equivalent to 10 hours of work.
Please note that programme structures may be subject to change.
Learning and teaching
The MSc in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management is not your typical postgraduate programme. You will be exposed to a wide variety of innovative learning experiences, such as hackathons and design sprints, in conjunction with more traditional approaches such as lectures, group-work and tutorials.
You will ‘learn by doing’ with a small cohort of like-minded students, looking to disrupt traditional ways of working and affect change.
Every effort is made to offer a high standard of diverse learning experiences making each subject accessible. This will range from pre-online learning to one-to-one coaching.
Modules are assessed through a mixture of group work, coursework, project work and examinations; the weighting of each of these components will vary according to the academic requirements of the module.
