This programme builds your knowledge of entrepreneurial organisations (public, private and not-for-profit), their leadership and management, and the changing external and international contexts in which they operate.
Our faculty members use a variety of teaching methods including: lectures and seminars, case studies, entrepreneurship and business scenarios, with distinguished visiting speakers and entrepreneurs. The Entrepreneurship Project is a live case study, where students undertake a management consultancy intervention with local firms. You will also work with leading academics and industry experts in the Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship.
HOW WE TEACH YOU
Henley Business School enjoys a strong reputation for the practical application of business ideas and concepts, underpinned by academic excellence and the strength of our research. We offer high-quality technical skills training as well as a deep understanding of the importance of personal development for leaders, a thread that runs through all of our Masters programmes.
Our postgraduate masters programmes feature a mix of core and optional modules, allowing you to tailor your degree towards your individual personal development needs and career ambitions. You will complete up to 10 taught modules during your programme, totalling 180 credits. One module usually equates to 20 credits or 10 hours of work per week. Your week will include lectures, tutorials, workshops and personal study, with each accounting for 25% of your time on average. This stimulating mix of lectures and interactive tutorials provides you with the opportunity to discuss and explore the subject material in depth with your lecturers and fellow students. You will be introduced to the latest thinking and research findings and be able to challenge some of those that have created it. You will also explore real-world issues and tackle current business challenges, and interact with guest lectures and speakers from industry, giving you the opportunity to test, extend and refine your knowledge and skills.
You will learn and be assessed through a wide variety of teaching methods which vary depending on your chosen Masters programme. These include online materials and multimedia content, guest lectures, individual and group assignments, case studies, field visits, dealing room simulations, presentations, applied projects, consultancy work and examinations.
On average examinations form around 70% of the assessed work with the remaining 30% coming from coursework, including a written dissertation or project depending on your chosen programme. The exam period falls between April and June in the summer term, with students taking an average of 5 or 6 exams. Graduation normally takes place in December.
This Masters programme is designed for graduates keen to pursue entrepreneurial careers, whether through their own start-up or through leadership roles in entrepreneurial firms. Graduates will also be equipped to work internationally in a general or trainee management role in any sector for organisations ranging from small and medium sized enterprises to multinational firms.
Although a good first or second class UK honours degree, or overseas equivalent, will usually be required, professional experience will be taken into account and applicants considered on their overall suitability for the programme. Evidence of entrepreneurial experience will be of particular value in our admissions decision. Prior knowledge or experience of your chosen subject area is not required. We welcome applications from recent university graduates from a wide range of disciplines.
