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.

Get more details about the programme her >>

The programme creates a unique opportunity to experience the challenges throughout the new product development process and to develop a mutual understanding about the rationales on the technology as well as on the business management side. There is a broad empirical basis that such a mutual understanding is a key prerequisite for successful cooperation between R&D and marketing and ultimately for innovation success. The aim of the programme is therefore to enhance students' understandings about strategies, structures, processes, people and cultures to develop successful innovations and to enhance the innovative capability of firms.

Programme structure

The programme has a duration of 2 years and consists of 4 semesters.

1st semester: Prerequisite courses

The student will get an insight to Management Research Method. The learning objective of this course is to enable you to conduct empirical business research in a valid and reliable manner.

The students will also follow a course which is an innovation challenge. This course aims to give students experience working with real life innovation challenges formulated by participating companies and organisations. By completing this course, students will have obtained a thorough understanding of the central phases of the innovative process and their challenges

In addition the course Classic and Contemporary Readings in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, will enable students to create two forms of competences. 1) An improved ability to read, question, and form conclusions from research-based literature, and 2) an overview of the central classic and contemporary literature in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Finally the first semester also introduces the course, Financing Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The aim of this course is to enable students to understand and perform the crucial tasks of planning and acquiring financing for innovative and entrepreneurial projects, products and/or services.

2nd semester: Specialisation courses

The second semester has an enhanced focus on innovation.

One of the courses is Managing Innovation.This course will give students an understanding of the fundamentals of managing creativity and innovation at individual, team and firm level. Students will acquire knowledge about central concepts of innovation and of how to manage innovation in terms of organisational structures, competences, and processes of innovation.

Another course will introduce Appropriating Innovation – Managing Intellectual Property. The aim of this course is to provide students with the essential, minimum knowledge of patents, copyright, trademarks and trade secrecy to survive and prosper in business.

The students will also be introduced to the course, Entrepreneurship Theory - Strategies of New Venture Creation and Growth. The objective of this course is to provide students with a broad understanding of the theories that make up the field of entrepreneurship research. In order to do so, the course introduces both the history of entrepreneurship research and the latest theory developments.

3rd semester: Electives or study abroad

In the third semester you can choose elective courses within your areas of interest. The courses can either be taken at Aarhus BSS during the semester, at the Summer University or at one of our more than 300 partner universities abroad. You can also participate in internship programmes either in Denmark or abroad.

4th semester: Final thesis

The fourth semester is devoted to the master's thesis. You may choose the topic of the thesis freely and get a chance to concentrate on and specialize in a specific field of interest. The thesis may be written in collaboration with another student or it may be the result of your individual effort. When the thesis has been submitted it is defended before the academic advisor as well as an external examiner.

If you are interested in working entrepreneurially, whether that is in a large multinational, your own business, or as a business consultant or analyst, this course is designed for you.

You will take our cutting-edge Ingenuity module where you will consider how to solve problems by thinking differently, as well as taking modules in leading entrepreneurial growth, launching new ventures and entrepreneurial creativity.

Your new knowledge is then deployed through a 'live' consultancy project with a fast-growing, local business where you will develop a report to show how the business can exploit new market opportunities – which is one of the things our students most like about the course.

Our approach is not to tell people how to become entrepreneurs, but to really engage them in practice so they develop their own entrepreneurial capabilities. You will cover core subjects in creativity, launching new ventures, and entrepreneurship in context, along with leading entrepreneurial growth and the unique Ingenuity project. You will also have a wide variety of options to tailor the course to your career aspirations.

Cross-disciplinary entrepreneurship courses are also available:

Academic English preparation and support

If you require additional support to take your language skills to the required level, you may be able to attend a presessional course at the Centre for English Language Education, which is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK. Students who successfully complete the presessional course to the required level can progress to postgraduate study without retaking IELTS or equivalent.

Specialist business and management courses are available and you could be eligible for a joint offer, which means you will only need to apply for your visa once. Students who enter via the CELE route are exempt from paying the school's £2,000 reservation fee. For more details, please contact us.
