Course content

Our Technology Entrepreneurship MSc degree is delivered in partnership with Accelerator, London Met’s business incubator based at the heart of east London’s Tech City. Accelerator offers a space for London start-ups and supports students to turn their business ideas into reality.

This master’s programme is designed to fit around your working life with classes running during evenings and weekends. It will provide you with the skills, experience and confidence to become a tech industry entrepreneur.

More about this course

Our Technology Entrepreneurship master’s programme will help you build skills and knowledge to develop and manage your own business in tech, as well as advance your understanding of entrepreneurship on a global scale. You’ll also learn how to use your entrepreneurial mindset in established technology organisations to drive positive change.

By the end of the course you will be adept at identifying new products and services, mapping out entrepreneurial opportunities in the tech world, developing and validating business concepts, pursuing funding, and taking products and services to market.

Our action-based and experiential method of teaching will enhance your skills, allowing you to experience genuine business challenges faced by technology enterprises, both in London and around the world. We will provide support for your technical development of your idea in the form of one-to-one sessions by specialists in the specific technology area, in modules such as Concept Validation and Investment Readiness. You will also be mentored and coached to further develop your ideas, as well as your personal and professional skills.

All of your modules will be taught in short but intensive five-week blocks during evenings and weekends.

Throughout the programme you will be immersed in London’s vibrant business community through our networks of entrepreneurs and investors. This is because the programme is delivered in its entirety at Accelerator, which lies at the heart of Tech City.


Assessment methods will emphasise not just knowledge but essential skills development too.

You’ll be assessed using a range of techniques including exams, group projects, written assignments and essays, group and individual presentations, and reports.
