Course content

To thrive in a disrupted world you will need creativity as well as commercial acumen. Come to the multi-award-winning home of innovative, design-led, creative business education and transform your prospects.

The MSc Business Innovation and Entrepreneurship will teach you how to apply your existing undergraduate degree knowledge in real-world business challenges appropriate to joining innovative organisations.

• Start-up your career and ideas in a professional supported environment
• Undertake applied commercial projects in collaborative teams
• Learn human-centred techniques for designing and developing ideas of real value

We welcome students from any discipline who are thinking about building a career either in large commercial organisations or start-ups.

This programme shares much of its teaching with our other MSc and MA Innovation and Entrepreneurship programmes but has a specific focus on intrapreneurial activity adding value within existing organisations.

This course will develop the high-level skills and critical competencies needed for successful organisational innovation and intrapreneurship, through a largely practice-orientated educational approach based on collaborative teamwork across disciplines and cultures.

During the programme you get opportunities to work alongside innovators and their businesses to develop a deep understanding of opportunities and challenges.

Bristol is a recognised hub for innovative and entrepreneurial business; ranked as the best place in the UK to start-up outside of London (Startup Cities Index, 2017), home to the world’s best university-run business incubator (UBI Global, 2015-2019) and home to some of the most impactful, innovative, and creative organisations in the world.
