Entrepreneurship (MSc)

Course Description

Course Description

Our MSc Entrepreneurship degree is designed for ambitious future entrepreneurs from a whole range of first degree backgrounds, including engineering and science. It aims to foster innovation and value creation, giving you the knowledge, skills and capabilities to create and lead successful start-ups.

You will develop a strong foundation in building and managing the key functions of a new venture, and be given the opportunity to actually do so during the course. We will expose you to the networks and investment opportunities you will need to get your ideas off the ground, and there’s even the chance to access seed funding directly from the Business School.

You will learn how to control risk and uncertainty, implement solutions and maximise opportunities. Through hands-on learning and a major practical project we will also challenge your preconceptions, develop your management skills and help you turn your ideas into powerful propositions.

Work placement

On the Msc Entrepreneurship course you will undertake an Entrepreneurial Experience Project in your final semester. You will be equipped with the skills and understanding you will need to set up and lead your own start-up enterprise.

This project gets to the heart of the MSc Entrepreneurship degree, enabling you to begin setting up a new venture and attracting finance. You will take part in a real pitching event, compete for seed capital, make valuable links and produce a robust business plan and profit formula.

Study and support

Teaching and learning methods are centred around interactive workshops which are highly participative in nature and will employ case studies, discussions, business simulations and group activities.

Interactivity is key to our teaching and we are committed to providing courses that adopt teaching methods that are appropriate to the student cohort and the specific modules.

We ensure that support and guidance is in place, especially during the early stages of the course and assessment periods, to help you become comfortable with operating in a student-centred learning environment.

Assessment methods

A range of assessment methods are used across the course, the choice of which reflects the needs and demands of the different types of module. Some modules will assess the ability to work collaboratively in a team and others will assess individual capability. Types of assessment will range from examinations to group presentations including essays, reports, financial analyses, literature reviews and research based projects.

The interactive nature of the taught sessions offers opportunities to gain feedback on your performance before being formally assessed and increasing use is made of eLearning to further support the feedback process.


All our courses begin with a comprehensive development programme that will help you prepare for your studies and develop key academic and transferable skills. A key feature is a short residential team-building course, normally in the Peak District.

You will also have opportunities to meet members of the teaching team and other postgraduate students, receive detailed programme information, and gain valuable support and guidance from the library, careers service, international office and Student Support Services.
