MEnt Chemistry

Course Description


The Master of Enterprise [MEnt] is run jointly by the School of Chemistry and Manchester Enterprise Centre. The course has been designed to combine Masters level research, sound business theory and the practical enterprise skills needed to apply that knowledge in a business context.

The Master of Enterprise degree reflects the nature of knowledge-based enterprise and innovation. Students develop ideas from their discipline into new products and services. The School of Chemistry has particular strengths in biological chemistry and organic synthesis, computational and theoretical chemistry, materials chemistry (inorganic and polymer), magnetic resonance and structural chemistry, radiochemistry and environmental chemistry and nanoscience. Manchester Science Enterprise Centre provides the enterprise element of the course and support in the business development activities undertaken by students. Each student has at least one subject supervisor, an enterprise supervisor and potentially a business mentor from a relevant industry sector.

Programme Content and Assessment

Students will learn key enterprise skills such as opportunity recognition, idea generation and the ability to transform ideas into tangible business proposals. Students will also gain essential knowledge and awareness in areas such as finance, risk management and market research.

Students are assessed by a combination of exams and coursework. Students take two compulsory enterprise units (30 credits in total) and two optional subject units (30 credits in total) from your academic area of interest and an Enterprise Project (120 credits). These can be selected from any of the University’s postgraduate programmes and will enable you to enhance your subject knowledge a commercial context.

Year-long enterprise research project

The project will develop a students competences in knowledge transfer and will combine enterprise, entrepreneurship and innovation research from a commercial perspective.

The project must have a potential commercial application and can be based on a students own proposal for a start-up business, or it can be undertaken on behalf of an external organisation. We can source suitable projects for students if required.
