Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Entrepreneurship and innovation play vital roles in knowledge creation and exploitation to generate value and drive sustainable economic, social, technological and organisational development. Processes and behaviours central to entrepreneurship and innovation are equally important to new and early stage ventures, and within existing organisations. The University of Edinburgh Business School's MSc in Entrepreneurship & Innovation is an exciting programme that leverages the research and teaching strengths within the School's Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group, and draws upon the rich entrepreneurial system within the University and wider Edinburgh area. The programme is designed to complement research-led and theoretically-informed education, with a clear focus on the development of practical skills and opportunities for the application of knowledge to real-life organisational situations and issues. This exciting Masters programme enables you to develop the knowledge and skills to identify and screen opportunities, and implement them within new and established organisations. The programme is targeted at students with both business and non-business backgrounds to create a vibrant and dynamic environment that will enrich learning through leveraging interdisciplinary knowledge within the cohort. The programme combines theoretical rigour with a unique focus on experiential and practical learning through direct engagement with organisations through project-based courses. It prepares you for a range of careers including as venture founders, managers of innovation within existing organisations, or in policy and business development roles in agencies supporting innovation.
