Summary

The Master of Enterprise (MEnt) Textiles and Fashion degree, offered in partnership with the Manchester Science and Enterprise Centre (MSEC), is a unique and exciting programme which provides a portal to guide you into the textile and fashion enterprise culture. Graduates of the programme have gone on to launch their own businesses or work for small and large global companies.

The programme will provide you with the latest technological know-how in your chosen area, building on your existing knowledge, and teach you the specific enterprise skills necessary for the successful launch and growth of a small company. The programme will also develop your understanding of the role of innovation and knowledge transfer in enterprise.

**The Programme**

Prior to joining the programme, you will normally have developed an enterprise idea - in some case you will have developed a product or service, as part of your final undergraduate degree, which you would like to turn into a business - but this is not compulsory.

The programme is made up of two core taught units (delivered by MSEC), Enterprise project, two elective taught units (delivered by the School of Materials) and a dissertation. The elective programme units run in parallel with the Enterprise project and provide and enhance the essential background to enable you to develop your idea, product or service.

You will be assessed by a combination of continuous assessment and examination.

Transferable skills are embedded in the units - presentation skills, report writing, project planning tools, ICT and web-based skills, negotiation, forecasting and pricing skills.
