This course enables entry onto the MSc Innovation and Entrepreneurship if you did not gain a first or second class honours at degree level (or equivalent). It will add to your existing skills and knowledge providing you with enhanced understanding and abilities which will prepare you for Masters courses,

This course will introduce business tools and techniques and theories that will enable you to operate more effectively in an entrepreneurial and innovative employment setting, providing you with the competencies to act entrepreneurially. The programme will include theoretical concepts of innovation, practical application of innovation, and the management skills required to effect the organisational change necessitated by innovation.

The course is designed so that full time students are able to complete their study in one academic year. By the end of the course you will have acquired high-level knowledge and understanding of innovation and enterprise concepts and principles, theoretical frameworks and applied analysis through a range of learning experiences including live case studies, visiting speakers and blended learning. You will also develop key skills in formulating and managing research, presentations, problem-solving and organising and managing group-based projects.
