MSc Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology

An increasing number of graduates are choosing to work for innovative entrepreneurial ventures rather than pursue more traditional graduate jobs. This Masters programme targets ambitious individuals who want to start or grow their own venture, work for a fast growing start-up, or work within established entrepreneurial, innovative organisations. Theory and practical tool-based modules work alongside a unique set of innovative 'lab' sessions that focus on developing specialist hard and soft skills.
