Why this course?

According to Wired magazine, some of the most dynamic and exciting career opportunities can currently be found in the startup and small business sectors. An increasing number of graduates are choosing to work for innovative entrepreneurial ventures rather than pursue more traditional graduate jobs. The Strathclyde MSc in Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Technology places graduates ahead of the curve when it comes to possessing the skills and knowledge required to make an impact in this fast-moving and rapidly evolving jobs market.

Delivered over a 12-month period, the MSc Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Technology is a highly practical, career focused programme that addresses the global demand for talented entrepreneurs and those working for entrepreneurial ventures.

The ethos of the course is that rigorous cutting-edge theoretical knowledge must be combined with a special focus on developing the practical skills required to engage successfully in entrepreneurial activity.

Through a unique virtual incubation programme, in conjunction with Waterloo University in Canada, you'll gain direct exposure to Canada’s world-leading Technology Triangle.

What you’ll study

The program involves a mix of theory and practical tool-based modules alongside a unique set of innovative ‘lab’ sessions that focus on developing specialist hard and soft skills.

The degree is split into three sections that are reflective of a real-world startup scenario:

-Road Testing: In semester two, attention will turn to establishing a new venture and ensuring the market viability of a prototype product/service
-Commercialisation: In the final semester, you'll work on a detailed innovative project in collaboration with Waterloo University, Canada, to simulate bringing a product to market

Major projects

The MSc Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Technology degree contains a unique 60 credit hands-on project that is run in partnership with Waterloo University, Canada. During this project, you'll work on an innovation challenge and will apply the tools and techniques you've practiced over the previous year. Using Waterloo’s Virtual Incubation Platform, you'll pitch to experienced venture capitalists and other potential investors in the UK and Canadian ecosystems.

Student competitions

You'll be expected to participate in national and international entrepreneurship and innovation prizes. Strathclyde University has a strong track record of success in various prestigious competitions and there are considerable free support networks in place to help students with their entries.

The Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship will provide a special university prize award for the best project.

Strathclyde Entrepreneurial Network

If you have a positive vision of the future, want to lead innovation and do business better – either across a large organisation or through your own startup – then the MSc in Sustainability and Business is ideal for you.

Uniquely based outside of a business school, we are preparing you, the next generation of innovators, to think, develop and reinvent sustainable enterprises in an increasingly challenging world.

You'll develop specialist skills to meet the growing need for sustainable entrepreneurship and innovation. Although large corporations are more visible, real innovation in sustainability is emerging and being driven by new businesses.

Practical skills – like developing ideas and plans for new sustainable ventures, pitching to investors and acting as a change agent within large organisations – give you experience of genuine business challenges faced in the real-world.

We offer you a truly inter-disciplinary learning experience that gives you the chance to work with your peers across subject areas to co-develop new business projects.

Course highlights:

  • The course is co-delivered by the Sustainability Research Institute and the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies at Leeds – two leading research institutions in the country – giving you valuable insight into sustainability, entrepreneurship and innovation.
  • Learn directly from award-winning academics, professionals in government, large corporations, stakeholders (such as community pressure groups) and visiting entrepreneurs and businesses.
  • Gain the confidence to launch your own business and/or innovate within a business, for example develop a sustainable business plan to pitch to investors.
  • Get support from our Spark student business startup service.
  • Gain direct experience of sustainability challenges in a developing country – you can choose an optional field course to Patagonia (South America) – essential if you're considering working in an international capacity.

The Master’s program in Data Science and Entrepreneurship combines management, entrepreneurship and business models with deep knowledge on data science methods from mathematics, statistics and computer science; understanding their limitations with regard to the law, regulations, and ethical considerations.

The Master’s program in Data Science and Entrepreneurship combines management, entrepreneurship and business models with deep knowledge on data science methods from mathematics, statistics and computer science; understanding their limitations with regard to the law, regulations, and ethical considerations.

Why the Master's program in Data Science and Entrepreneurship?
Are you interested in deploying the potential power of big data to solve real-world problems? Is it a challenge for you to work with complex, structured and unstructured data? Do you like to transform innovative data-centered concepts and ideas into concrete novel and value-adding products and services? And to design business initiatives?

Data science entrepreneurs are able to monetize the flood of data that is generated in this digital age by exploiting the economic value of personal data, developing novel ways to get actionable insights from data streams and exploring novel marketing models. They will typically start up and/or innovate within data based product companies.

Therefore, in this English Master's program you will:
- Combine data science courses with courses that address the entrepreneurship pillar of the program
Examples of courses are: data integration and architecture, data mining, business process management, data entrepreneurship, and creative thinking and open innovation.

- Incorporate theories and concepts from legal and ethical aspects of business venturing, intellectual property, and ethical and privacy aspects of data.

- Apply data entrepreneurship in building a technology startup
The backbone of the program is formed by a series of courses called Data Entrepreneurship in Action (1-3). In these courses, student teams use data-driven methods to test the feasibility of an idea/innovation, build a data-intensive product/solution, propose sales channels and customers, and develop entrepreneurial skills in building a technology startup.

- Solve actual problems with real datasets from industrial partners
Representatives from the industrial partners will share actual problems and datasets in two or three applications domains from which student teams can choose. As 'clients' of the teams, the industrial representatives will actively work with our professors to coach the student teams.

This program is not yet registered in the Netherlands Central Register of Higher Education Study Programs (CROHO). A proposal for initial accreditation will be submitted to the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This procedure might take up to six months and there is no guarantee of a positive decision by the NVAO. Only after accreditation by the NVAO and subsequent CROHO registration can this program be started up.
