Course summary

To thrive in a disrupted world you will need creativity as well as commercial acumen. The MSc Innovation and Entrepreneurship will teach you how to apply your existing undergraduate degree knowledge in real-world business challenges. For example:

  • starting up your career and ideas in a professional supported environment,
  • undertaking applied commercial projects in collaborative teams,
  • learning human-centred techniques for designing and developing ideas of real value.
We welcome students from any discipline who are thinking about starting up their own venture or building a career adding innovative value to existing organisations and companies. This programme shares much of its teaching with our other Innovation and Entrepreneurship programmes (MA and MSc) but maintains a broad perspective allowing you to adapt your focus over time. This course will develop the high-level skills and critical competencies needed for successful organisational innovation and entrepreneurship, through a largely practice-orientated educational approach based on collaborative teamwork across disciplines and cultures. During the programme you get opportunities to work alongside innovators, entrepreneurs, and their businesses to develop a deep understanding of opportunities and challenges. Bristol is a recognised hub for innovative and entrepreneurial business, being ranked within the top 5 best places in the UK to start-up outside of London (Startup Cities Index, 2022), and home to some of the most impactful, innovative, and creative organisations in the world.
