You are a curious, persistent, problem-solving, team-oriented and ambitious graduate interested in launching your own business, leading initiatives within large corporations or taking your family business to the next level. You relish the challenge of learning in a fast-paced, hands-on programme, created and taught by leading academics and entrepreneurs.
You’re looking for an academically rigorous and professionally relevant qualification that will serve your ultimate needs as an entrepreneur or business owner.
You begin your MSc by plunging straight into the world of entrepreneurship as we kick off with New Venture Creation. During this four-day module, you and your fellow students come together to share ideas, form teams and build prototypes.
You’ll quickly realise that your studies put strong emphasis on balancing research-led teaching with experiential learning such as consulting for small-business owners, preparation for joining an accelerator and field trips. It’s your fast-track guide through the intricate process of starting your own venture/initiative.
The overarching aim is to help nurture innovative and prosperous new ventures with responsible leaders who appreciate the demands of multiple stakeholders.
At Cass Innovate 2017, our MSc in Entrepreneurship students had the chance to hear from, learn from and interact with entrepreneurs and innovators at every stage of their journeys – from fledgling start-ups to fully fledged global giants. The conference showcased the work of staff, students and alumni from the MSc in Entrepreneurship, as well as friends and colleagues from a broad range of innovative organisations.
We review all our courses regularly to keep them up-to-date on issues of both theory and practice.
To satisfy the requirements of the degree course students must complete:
Assessment of modules on the MSc in Entrepreneurship, in most cases, is by means of coursework and unseen examination. Coursework may consist of standard essays, individual and group presentations, group reports, classwork, unseen tests and problem sets. Please note that any group work may include an element of peer assessment.
The course will kick off with New Venture Creation. This will be a four-day module, where you and your fellow students will come together and share ideas, form teams and build prototypes (no credits).
* We believe that this is an important component of this programme since it requires you to practice entrepreneurship. During induction, we will discuss the compulsory activities that you must participate in and reflect on, throughout the academic year. You will be required to develop an individual professional development portfolio, which may include: mentoring diary, participation in startup competitions, attendance to all relevant events (and reflections), and participation in research projects of faculty in the entrepreneurship.
Being very close to the “Silicon roundabout”, you will be perfectly placed to exploit the opportunities created by this programme. Our dedicated careers team will work with you to identify and achieve your career goals by providing one-to-one support. You will also benefit from regular skills workshops and employer and alumni networking opportunities.
Depending on your sphere of interest and expertise, potential opportunities after graduation include being the founder or CEO of the venture created during your studies or pursuing a career in start-ups or corporate organizations who are always on the lookout for candidates with entrepreneurial spirit and knowhow.
