Course content

Across the globe, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs are making strong contributions to national economies. As a result, government and business are investing heavily in enterprise and innovation.

This Master’s degree aims to develop the entrepreneurial and enterprising skills required to increase your confidence and know-how in generating, implementing and managing new ideas in uncertain and changing contexts. Key to this is the ‘entrepreneurial mind-set’: our aim is to forge an inquisitive and creative mind, where you should learn entrepreneurship through the lenses of disruption, growth and scaling, and sustainability. This focus aims to go beyond traditional ideas of entrepreneurship to include social entrepreneurship, global enterprise and transnational entrepreneurship, gender-based rethinking of the entrepreneurial paradigm, and more.

Extended Professional Practice

This course offers the option of undertaking Extended Professional Practice. Our Extended MSc courses are delivered over 18 months instead of the usual 12 months, giving you the opportunity to undertake a longer internship* or project as part of your course.

You will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of how businesses operate, how to apply theory to real-world scenarios, and how best to prepare you for the world of business with confidence.

Our Talent Team are here to support you in securing an extended placement with the right employer. Whether you are looking to join a small business or a large organisation, the team will work with you to help you achieve your internship goal.

Your placement will be full-time, with students expected to work approximately 35 hours per week.

The Extended Professional Practice course lasts 5 semesters; during semesters 1 and 2 you will undertake 120 taught credits on-campus; in semesters 3 and 4 you will undertake the placement; in the final semester, you will take a 60-credit project module in which you will write up your internship report and research findings.

*internships may be subject to availability, competitive application, meeting visa requirements and additional costs.
