Course content

The MSc Prosperity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship will prepare you to become one of a new generation of global leaders and entrepreneurs. At the core of the programme is the concept of transformative entrepreneurship, which involves the development and implementation of innovations to address the causes and consequences of environmental degradation, economic inequality and social injustice.

The mission of the Institute for Global Prosperity (IGP) is to rethink social and environmental prosperity and to generate new entrepreneurial models and measures to deliver prosperity. Prosperous communities are socially inclusive, equitable and sustainable; however, radical changes are required to overcome today's grand challenges and to enact such prosperity.

The IGP is pioneering research into questions of prosperity and driving forward novel transdisciplinary engagements to deliver new, more prosperous social and economic forms. As a student in the Department, you will have the opportunity to become part of this emerging community, to learn from and participate in our research, and to help shape debates around what a prosperous society should be. We expect you to become value-driven leaders and entrepreneurs who go on to deploy in your future careers the ideas and practices you have learnt.

You will have the opportunity to engage with a range of IGP researchers, partners and affiliated fellows with possibilities of developing academic, policy or entrepreneurship projects. As a multidisciplinary global university with wide resources at its disposal, UCL is the ideal environment in which to study transformative entrepreneurship.
