Entrepreneurship

MSc Entrepreneurship focuses on the development of entrepreneurial skills. Combined with an understanding of the international business environment, these skills are increasingly important for a career in the modern business environment. Entrepreneurial and innovation driven firms from mature and emerging economies are increasingly taking advantage of global markets and seeking to improve their international strategies and operations. You will develop an understanding of the global business environment and the factors that should inform both entrepreneurial business decisions and business organisation conducive to experimentation and change. You will also gain the analytical and strategic skills needed to set up and manage new enterprises in the national and international contexts and the knowledge required for developing innovation-based business strategies. The MSc Entrepreneurship will enable you to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. The course will prepare you for starting your own business but is equally useful for students who want to become entrepreneurial employees. Entrepreneurial employees are of value to their employers because they are alert to opportunities to differentiate and innovate business activities. An entrepreneurial mindset and attitude will definitely prepare you for a fast-changing market. Starting a new enterprise requires creativity as well as the analytical skills to evaluate the feasibility and viability of business opportunities. The MSc Entrepreneurship will enhance your knowledge of venture creation and business growth strategies. The curriculum also provides plenty of opportunities for the practical application of enterprise skills.

Assessment methods

You will be assessed through a mixture of examinations and coursework. In addition, you will prepare a dissertation which will either be a business plan for an entrepreneurial venture or an investigation with a focus on entrepreneurship.
