Course Overview

MSc Entrepreneurship focuses on the development of entrepreneurial skills. Combined with an understanding of the international business environment these skills are increasingly important for a career in the modern business environment. Entrepreneurial and innovation-driven businesses from mature and emerging economies are increasingly taking advantage of global markets and seeking to improve their international strategies and operations.

You'll develop an understanding of the global business environment and the factors that inform both entrepreneurial business decisions and business organisations conducive to experimentation and change. You'll also gain analytical and strategic skills to enable you to set up and manage new enterprises within a national and international context and the knowledge required for developing innovation-based business strategies.

MSc Entrepreneurship will enable you to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. The course will prepare you for starting your own business but is equally useful for students who want to become entrepreneurial employees. Entrepreneurial employees are of value to their employers because they are alert to opportunities to differentiate and innovate business activities. An entrepreneurial mindset and attitude will definitely prepare you for a fast-changing market.

Starting a new enterprise requires creativity as well as the analytical skills to evaluate the feasibility and viability of business opportunities. MSc Entrepreneurship will enhance your knowledge of venture creation and business growth strategies. The curriculum also provides plenty of opportunities for the practical application of enterprise skills.
