Entrepreneurship & Innovation

**Why choose this course** "Entrepreneurship and innovation are essential for growth strategies in a world faced by technological disruption. This course will prepare you for these challenges and opportunities - whether in a large organisation, emerging-growth company or start-up. We combine an academic foundation with practical experience to reinforce your skills. This may include an actual crowdfunding campaign or a project with companies in the SETSquared Partnership - Surrey, ranked number one university business incubator worldwide by UBI Global. You can also tailor your individual experience through a choice of modules and final project, while benefitting from mentoring expertise to help you fulfil your career aspirations." **What you will study** In our MSc Entrepreneurship & Innovation programme, you'll develop skills and concepts in core modules while optional modules let you develop an individualised experience. You'll study concepts including ideation and opportunity recognition, which is related to the entrepreneurial mind-set; business modelling, which has become increasingly important in the digital economy; and digital marketing, which embeds crowdfunding. In the second term, you'll study product-market research and business planning, which you'll apply in a project with start-up companies. You'll also review innovation management, which looks at strategies of growth in large organisations. We offer optional modules in both terms on topics such as Global Strategy, Marketing Analytics, and E-Business. If you have a science or mathematics foundation, modules in the Engineering faculty are available including artificial intelligence and the 'internet of things'. The final project can be either a business plan or consulting project and reflects your cumulative learning experience.
