In a rapidly changing environment, businesses need to evolve and continuously adapt to new challenges.

The Master's specialisation in Innovation and Entrepreneurship provides the skills and knowledge that enables entrepreneurial problem solvers and creative thinkers to understand the challenges that innovative entrepreneurs face in their businesses, whether a start-up, large company or SME. It deals with the commercialiation of new ideas, high-tech innovations, business development and tapping into new markets. You'll learn how an entrepreneurial orientation helps companies to position themselves in a business ecosystem. We'll help you develop a creative mind-set and innovative and entrepreneurial capabilities.

Combined perspective

Innovation management and entrepreneurship are combined in this specialisation. Both are vital for small and large companies to help bring novel products and services to the market, or to reinvent the business model of an existing industry. An entrepreneurial approach is also key in established firms that regularly develop innovative products. It relies on an entrepreneurial mindset and behaviour to incubate innovations.

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Context course is at the core of the specialisation. It aims to provide a better understanding of entrepreneurial innovators who operate from their constructed identity and capture external opportunities. In other courses, you'll learn about the processes to identify ideas for innovation, manage innovation and business development projects, develop a business plan or analyse business models and strategic scenarios.

Business ecosystems excellence

This specialisation takes a broad, multidisciplinary view, examining the interactions of firms within the context of their business ecosystems.

As a student in the Master's in Innovation and Entrepreneurship you will participate in the research hotspot Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Business Ecosystems, which aims at understanding the knowledge and skills necessary to understand how organisations can grow through innovation processes and what kind of people are needed in the company to accomplish this. It provides the knowledge and skills needed to understand the challenges that entrepreneurs face when starting their business in a changing environment.

The Nijmegen School of Management boasts a rich and inspiring blend of subjects with great social significance. The multi-disciplinarity of the faculty provides the perfect conditions to study entrepreneurship in research and education.

Why study Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Radboud University?

  • Unique interdisciplinary approach

Students that have completed this specialisation will have acquired the knowledge, skills and competencies that enable them to act as innovators, innovation managers, and entrepreneurs. This means you could be ready to launch your own company or be an agent of change within an existing firm as a business development manager, product manager or innovation manager. You'll acquire skills to identify and structure ideas for innovation and business development and organise their implementation.

Do you want to change the world? Our innovation programmes will set you on your way.

The innovators of the 21st century will bring together arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players, with a breadth of skills enabling them to work across specialisms and cultures. They will be designers and entrepreneurs, and have a passion for style, efficiency and sustainability. Bristol’s innovation programmes are for people who want to pursue their subject specialism in a way that enables them to apply it: to become innovators who can change the world.

Our aim is to educate a new generation to create and grow innovative companies and social enterprises. The MSc Innovation and Entrepreneurship programme aims to develop the high-level skills and critical competencies needed for successful innovation and entrepreneurship, through a practice-orientated approach based on collaborative teamwork across disciplines and cultures. It teaches students how to apply their subject-specific knowledge to real-world challenges through a range of transdisciplinary units focusing on innovation-led entrepreneurial skills, design and systems thinking, making and testing. Students will be equipped to apply their knowledge and skills to address key issues such as health, education and the environment. Their final project will be their launchpad, when they will create an enterprise, put together a detailed plan and work out how take it forward and raise investment.

Santander Innovation Scholarships

We have five Santander Innovation Scholarships worth £3,000 each, which will be awarded as a one-off payment to the top five students on the MSc Innovation and Entrepreneurship programme at the beginning of their course. These scholarships will be open to both home and overseas students and will be offered based on academic merit for the best innovation pitches (text or video) submitted, as judged by the innovations academic team. Representatives from Santander will meet the student award recipients at an event in September/October, near the start of term, when these scholarships will be awarded.

Programme structure

You will start by learning to work in teams and find out about both design thinking and systems thinking. This combination can deliver a holistic understanding of a genuine problem or need, generate ideas that will transform both the system and lives of users, while ensuring the new system is sustainable. You will work in multidisciplinary teams to take on a series of innovation and entrepreneurial challenges. You will also learn to create innovations to meet real human needs through the In the Wild unit, understanding your target audience and the issues facing them and developing ideas for possible solutions. You will gain insight into the technological, social and political influences on design and innovation, drawing on case studies of success and failure to help you think about future opportunities.

In the second teaching block you will explore solutions for a real-world client, iterating to develop an unexpected range of possibilities and creating prototypes to test with real customers or users. You will learn about different kinds of enterprise and learn how to explore your ideas from a business or social perspective and how to place them in the appropriate context. You will find out how to assess the feasibility, sustainability and desirability of a proposed venture, how to create business plans and how to assess whether your ideas will work, are viable, or whether anyone will want them.

In your final project over the summer, you will work in teams to pull together all you have learned - to create and trial a prototype for an innovative product or service, or a social innovation. Your team may contain staff and external partners, as well as students. You will put together a detailed enterprise plan to accompany your prototype, including market analysis, intellectual property searches, resource profiles, financial plans, user testing and clear opportunities for investment.

Careers

You will still be an expert in your chosen subject specialism and you will still be able to proceed into careers requiring an honours course in that specialism. However you will also be equipped to do much more: to take your subject knowledge and apply it to real-world challenges, to innovate, to work in teams with people from different specialisms, backgrounds and cultures, and to create and implement entrepreneurial plans to take ideas forward. These skills are highly valued by all organisations, large or small, local or global.

You may graduate as a member of a new venture that you and your fellow students have created. Or you may decide you want to create your own enterprise or join an existing one. Whatever you decide, you will be able to hit the ground running, building on your entrepreneurial and innovation experience. You will soon have the satisfaction of seeing your work starting to make an impact – and ultimately changing the world.

You will graduate with a portfolio of work to show what you have been able to do and will have a network of professional contacts to draw on. You will also be able to go on to further study, either in the UK or internationally.

This programme

Our MRes programme will enable you to become part of our passionate research community, and gain specialised knowledge of entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as critical perspectives on different research methods.

If you have a passion for research, our multidisciplinary MRes programme will provide you with an opportunity to widen your skills, focus your interests and take the next step towards an MPhil or PhD.

Studying an MRes with the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship will give you a fascinating introduction into the life of a postgraduate researcher. You will gain rigorous research and analytical skills, in order to progress onto high level researcher positions within your chosen sector or field.

Research skills are greatly in demand across the high value industries of the UK.

Why take this course?

This exciting Master’s course will provide you with the knowledge and understanding to develop and launch new products and services, manage small enterprises and generate new ideas and opportunities. It will equip you in your future career to create an entrepreneurial environment that will facilitate innovation and stimulate growth.

This is the ideal course if you are seeking a career where innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity are defining key features. Roles such as these can be found in large organisations, in small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and in start-up businesses.

What will I experience?

On this course you can:

Gain relevant skills such as business planning, developing and marketing new products and financial management

The dissertation enables you to deepen your understanding of an aspect of innovation management or entrepreneurship.

Programme Assessment

Our friendly and supportive environment uses formal lectures, workshops, and seminars to provide the basis for the development of relevant knowledge, further enhanced by activity-based case studies. We utilise both theory and practice-oriented teaching. Teaching and learning is through weekly half-day sessions, depending on whether you are taking the course full or part-time.

For each unit you will be assessed in a way that will deepen your knowledge of the subjects covered. This will involve you thinking and working in an original way to overcome genuine problems. At the end of the course you will also complete a dissertation which can be related to your workplace, your future career, or a desired business venture.

This MSc will equip you with the fundamental knowledge and skills required for managing innovative product and brand or policy development, service delivery, or integration of emerging technologies in fast-paced industries.

The management of innovation is the critical element ensuring successful new products and services are encouraged, survive, and flourish.

Every successful company from technologists like Google, Apple, and Spotify to think tanks and agencies like Ogilvy, Unruly Media or Mindshare, media like Monocle, BBC, and Wall Street Journal, and even movements like Bitcoin and Occupy understand the need for innovation and creativity.

Another common characteristic of these organisations is that senior executives or leaders from all of them have shared and discussed innovation challenges and opportunities with students on this programme. Recent speakers in our Innovation Case Studies series have included fashion designer Paul Smith, 'city super woman' Nicola Horlick, and editor of Monocle Tyler Brûlé.

Goldsmiths graduates have recently captured Academy Awards, Baftas, and Golden Globes (Steve McQueen, 12 Years a Slave), the Mercury Prize (James Blake) and the Turner Prize (Laure Prouvost). We have a long history of demonstrating innovation and our students have the unique opportunity of developing interdisiciplinary practical and theoretical management capabilities in this bustling creative and entrepreneurial environment.
