MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management

Course Description


Entrepreneurship will be studied in the context of both academic theory and self-reflection to see if you personally have the qualities to take action and make an idea happen.
Failure in business is often seen as a negative outcome but there are vital lessons that can be learnt from failing and we will put this into context with the reasons why many organisations do fail, how to avoid it and how to wind up a company successfully if you do fail.

The world is in a global recession. Innovation has been placed at the heart of international policy to drive jobs, growth and recovery but what is the innovation process? How do we best support innovation to catalyse growth and bring renewed prosperity? How do we encourage people to display entrepreneurial behaviour and show them that, with the right resources and attitudes, ideas can be turned into profitable products and services?

This programme analyses the Entrepreneur and the innovation process giving you the opportunity to explore and reflect on the skills needed for success. As well as the ability to set up their own venture, graduates of this programme will also have the skills to progress into large blue chip companies and work in R&D management, developing new products, markets and customer segments.

The Glendonbrook Institute for Enterprise Development’s aim is to encourage you to develop enterprising and innovative skills through the programme’s dedicated modules. In a few cases, you show true entrepreneurial behaviour by running or aspiring to set up your own businesses and we’ll provide support for you to do so via a range of formal and informal services.

Our programme provides you with in-depth teaching of subjects that are often only briefly mentioned in traditional business programmes – intellectual property; sources of funding for small business and business failure will all be studied as complete modules. Intellectual property is of vital importance to the entrepreneur, we have also devoted a whole module to studying the details and practical application of this rarely studied topic.

In addition, the Collaborative Project module will provide you with the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills such as problem solving and strategic planning whilst working together on a real business problem.
