Course content

This unique MA programme is designed for students who want to start and run innovative businesses where the way you do things is as important as what you do. It is based in a university and run by leading practitioners from the creative industries, ensuring you receive the highest-quality practice-based learning.

Students will learn to initiate a creative enterprise project; to apply creative arts practice approaches to enterprise and business activities; to think critically about the relationship between ethos and delivery when starting a business; to master the lean start-up skills needed to initiate, grow and establish a new enterprise; and to critically assess and reform enterprise activities.

Students learn creative practices, and follow the Lean Start-up model, to provide them with the understanding, critical abilities and skill sets that will enable them to develop innovative, desirable and distinctive new products or services, and to start-up the value-rich, ethos-driven companies that will take those products to market and thrive in the contemporary world.

Students have access to a wide range of innovation-focused initiatives and events at UCL including the programmes offered by UCL Innovation and Enterprise. We endeavour to find ways to put you in touch with relevant individuals in the creative and start-up networks and communities thriving in London.
