Course content

Managing innovation and making the most of new technologies is vital for any business to grow whether it is a start-up or however established the company or organisation is. With the Innovation Management & Entrepreneurship MSc from Kingston Business School you can realise that ambition.

Our strong track record of excellence in entrepreneurship has been recognised by the Higher Education Statistics Agency and for the sixth year running, Kingston University is ranked one of the top two universities in the UK for graduate start-ups.

The course includes a University-sponsored study tour to an innovation hotspot, which could be Silicon Valley, Cambridge or another place, where you will have a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience meeting with outstanding entrepreneurs, high-growth start-ups, the innovative tech giants and investors. You also have the possibility to participate in a week-long study visit to a foreign business school where you can meet students studying a similar programme and undertake visits to local companies.

What will you study

The course focuses on the analysis and practical application of the key issues surrounding innovation management and entrepreneurship from the perspective of firms, including lean start-up techniques, innovation management, effective entrepreneurship (soft skills), entrepreneurial finance, managing a growing business, strategy for high-growth businesses, entrepreneurial marketing and internationalisation.

Work placement scheme

Many postgraduate courses at Kingston University allow students to do a 12-month work placement as part of their course. The responsibility for finding the placement is with the student; we cannot guarantee the placement, just the opportunity to undertake it. As the work placement is an assessed part of the course, the work placement is covered by a student's tier 4 visa.
