Summary

If you’re looking to start your own company, lead a family business or gain entrepreneurial skills which are held in high regard by employers, then look no further. Our MSc Entrepreneurship will help you to identify business opportunities and pursue new ventures. You will develop your understanding of the global commercial environment allowing you to manage and grow a business internationally.

The course covers the entire process of starting a new business venture, from the initial idea to international expansion. It will help you to identify and develop business opportunities and teach you how to check the feasibility of a venture using key frameworks and tools. It will teach you business growth strategies and what funding options are available to entrepreneurs. You’ll also appreciate how enterprises can vary in terms of their mission, from commercial ventures aiming to maximise profits to social enterprises who prioritise social wealth creation. We also explore entrepreneurship in the context of family businesses and corporate intrapreneurship.

We focus on developing practical entrepreneurial skills throughout the programme. For example, you’ll have the opportunity to gain practical experience writing formal business plans and presenting venture propositions to would-be investors by the way of a pitch. We’ll also develop key transferable skills which employers consider highly valuable. You’ll enhance your communication, teamwork, analytical and critical-thinking abilities thanks to our emphasis on applied learning methods.

With extensive industry contacts, links to business incubators and a huge amount of start-up support available, we’re the perfect stepping stone for your future.

Our MSc Entrepreneurship is ranked 5th in the UK and 47th in the world in the Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking 2018. In addition to a world-class education, you can also benefit from a business incubator located on campus. BSEEN (Birmingham Skills for Enterprise and Employability Network) offers workshops, tailored business support and grants to students and graduates embarking on new business ventures. Our extensive industry links can also provide you with mentoring opportunities.

Attracting students from all over the world, this course is a great opportunity to mix with people from different cultures and diverse backgrounds. You can build a network of international contacts and you’ll experience working as part of a multicultural team.
