Are you a born entrepreneur? While entrepreneurial spirit may be natural, knowing how to harness it is another thing. Our highly innovative Masters course will give you the skills you need to boost your employability and get your own start-up off the ground.
Highly innovative in both design and delivery, our course provides a robust grounding in entrepreneurial management at postgraduate level. You’ll develop a set of special abilities and skills which you can use throughout your working life, whether working for other organisations or for yourself.
Alongside traditional teaching methods, you’ll benefit from entrepreneur-led sessions. Our Entrepreneur in Residence network means that a successful entrepreneur will mentor you throughout your studies, helping you to channel your natural abilities and turn them into something palpable.
The Big Pitch has been a life-changing experience as it has given me the seed funding to launch my own tea start-up. Thanks to the mentoring and guidance received through CEDAR, I feel much more confident now to start my entrepreneurial journey
There’s plenty of scope for hands-on experience, too. Our Centre for Enterprise Development and Research (CEDAR) has extensive networks, through which you'll be able to work in an entrepreneurial organisation and develop your own proposition. You’ll add value to your host organisation while boosting your employability and confidence in establishing your own ventures.
