This dynamic MSc course is designed to equip you with a specialist and in-depth understanding of entrepreneurship. The course draws upon the highest level of theory and practice in this field and builds on the extensive research and teaching expertise of academics within the School of Management. Our units in specialist entrepreneurship subjects are designed specifically for their relevance to contemporary entrepreneurship research, policy and practice. Our course is further enriched by the knowledge and expertise shared by our visiting speakers which include entrepreneurs running successful and in some cases highly innovative SMEs and large corporate organizations. We aim to provide you with some of the key skills and knowledge required to develop your own projects, whether it be starting a new organization or developing an entrepreneurial project within an existing organization, in the public, private or voluntary sectors.
