Course content

This Master’s programme develops students into entrepreneurial individuals with the competence and confidence to take effective decisions as a leader of a start-up venture or within an entrepreneurial firm.

About the programme

This programme has a strong conceptual and theoretical foundation as the basis for putting ‘theory into practice’. This builds your knowledge of start-up and entrepreneurial organisations (public, private and not-for-profit), their leadership and management, and the changing external and international contexts in which they operate.

With distinguished visiting speakers and entrepreneurs, our faculty members use a variety of teaching methods including: lectures and seminars, case studies, entrepreneurship and business scenarios.

The capstone is the Entrepreneurship project, which provides students with a rich learning experience by working with start-up entrepreneurs, or entrepreneurs re-designing their ventures, in a collaborative consultancy situation, over a six-week period. Preparation for this project involves visits to a start-up incubator in Spring term and a study visit (usually to Poland) to work with start-up entrepreneurs and coaches from the EU Climate-KIC programme.

You will also work with leading academics and industry experts in the Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship, or gain access to our network of entrepreneurs and investors in entrepreneurs (Henley Business Angel Network).
