Course content

Overview

Our MSc Enterprise and Entrepreneurship develops your enterprise skills and gives you an insight into how you can create economic and social value through entrepreneurial activity. You’ll gain the skills and knowledge to develop and manage your own business as well as being able to work more entrepreneurially in other organisations. By the end of the course you will be adept at identifying new products, processes and markets to exploit opportunities in innovative ways.

Delivered and supported by award-winning academics and successful entrepreneurs, this course develops your understanding of enterprise and entrepreneurship on a global scale. You’ll develop your skills through practical activities such as creating a ‘pop-up’ business, acting as a consultant to an existing organisation and exploring your own entrepreneurial potential. Our action-based teaching techniques stimulate and enhance your skills, allowing you to experience genuine business challenges faced by enterprise both locally and globally.

The Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies is the focal point for enterprise education on campus at the University of Leeds. It provides exceptional research-based enterprise teaching and practical support.

You will also benefit from the centre’s network of Enterprise Ambassadors. These successful entrepreneurs provide real-world projects as part of the programme, which helps you to understand how to apply your enterprise education in practice.

Course content

Introductory modules explore the concepts of enterprise and entrepreneurship and their role in society. You’ll examine how enterprise is seen around the world, and how different geographical and economic contexts create challenges for new ventures.

You’ll consider contemporary issues and debates during guest lectures with successful entrepreneurs, hearing first-hand about their experience of the latest topics. You’ll also develop your understanding of research methods in business and enterprise studies.

The course has a practical focus and you will work on a range of projects that allow you to gain real experience – you’ll create a new venture and work in a team to deliver a consultancy project for an entrepreneurial business.

In the final semester, you’ll complete a dissertation project on a research question of your choice - this can be used to explore your own ideas for a business venture or social enterprise, or look at how best to support or grow an existing firm.
