Course content

The Entrepreneurship MSc programme is designed as a personal entrepreneurial journey where students develop key skills in modules during the first term and then develop more specialised skills through the choice of electives in the second term. Students also reinforce academic understanding of key areas such as accounting & finance and innovation management.

The final project is an opportunity for students to apply these skills through either a business plan project or consulting project. It may be developed on an original business idea or be developed in conjunction with an existing start-up business.

Programme structure

This programme is studied full-time over one academic year. It consists of eight taught modules and a dissertation.

Example module listing

The following modules are indicative, reflecting the information available at the time of publication. Please note that not all modules described are compulsory and may be subject to teaching availability and/or student demand.

Educational aims of the programme

The programmes aim to provide a high quality education that is intellectually rigorous and up-to-date, as well as relevant to the needs of future entrepreneurs whether they are inside existing organisations or starting up companies.

Modules provide a theoretical framework and practical skills that aspiring entrepreneurs need in order to cope with an increasingly complex and dynamic business world in which we live. The programmes provide the students with the basis for developing their own approach to learning and personal development.

The compulsory modules aim to provide not only a rigorous treatment of the relevant theory, but also the quantitative techniques necessary to understand the literature and undertake empirical investigations in the areas of entrepreneurship.

The optional modules aim to offer students a broader perspective on the subject matter and allow them to specialise in areas that are of particular interest to them.

The final project provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge in the form of either a business plan, or a consultation project.
