Course content

Our one year, full-time MSc in Management programmes are designed to provide you with the tools, techniques, and knowledge to succeed in business.

Our MSc Management (Entrepreneurship) has been developed to help entrepreneurial thinkers turn ideas into action. It could be launching your own idea, developing something in partnership, or investing in new ventures – or perhaps you want to find fresh ways to foster and harness entrepreneurial thinking in a business context. Whatever your aims, you’ll learn in a stimulating and enjoyable environment, guided by experienced academics.

The programme consists of a set of core and elective modules, culminating in a practice-based business project or a research-based dissertation.

Core and elective modules

You will study:

  • Entrepreneurship and the Entrepreneurial Process
  • New Venture Creation
  • Organisational Behaviour
  • Strategy
  • The Entrepreneur's Environment
  • Either Strategic Marketing Management OR Business Economics and Accounting

You’ll then choose three elective modules. The list of modules may vary from year to year, but has typically included: Consulting, East Asian Business and Management, Employee Reward Strategy, Competitive Strategies & Organisational Fitness, Global Marketing, Innovation and Technology Management.

Dissertation

In the third term, you will carry out an original research project. This may be an independent piece of work or, alternatively, you may decide to develop a more applied project with an appropriate organisation. Supervised by a faculty member with relevant experience, you’ll investigate in greater detail a subject that you’ve already studied as part of your programme. This is an opportunity for you to develop your business insight and present your analysis and ideas in a scholarly and professional manner.
