Months of entry
To thrive in a disrupted world you will need creativity as well as commercial acumen to change things for the better. The MSc Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship will teach you how to apply your passion to change the world through real-world business challenges, including:
- starting up your career and ideas in a professional supported environment,
- undertaking applied commercial projects in collaborative teams,
- learning human-centred techniques for designing and developing ideas of real social value.
We welcome students from any discipline who are thinking about building a socially purposed career either in large commercial organisations or start-ups.
This programme shares much of its teaching with our other Innovation and Entrepreneurship programmes (MSc and MA) but has a specific focus on social value and social innovation.
You will develop the high-level skills and critical competencies needed for successful social innovation and entrepreneurship, through a largely practice-orientated educational approach based on collaborative teamwork across disciplines and cultures.
During the programme you get opportunities to work alongside social-purpose businesses and organisations to develop a deep understanding of their opportunities and challenges.
Bristol is a recognised hub for innovative and entrepreneurial business, being ranked within the top 5 best places in the UK to start-up outside of London (Startup Cities Index, 2022), and home to some of the most impactful, innovative, and creative organisations in the world.
