Teaching and research
Innovative learning experiences
MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management is not your typical postgraduate programme. You will be exposed to a wide variety of innovative learning experiences, such as hackathons and design sprints, in conjunction with more traditional approaches such as lectures, group-work and tutorials.
You will ‘learn by doing’ with a small cohort of like-minded students, looking to disrupt traditional ways of working and affect change.
Every effort is made to offer a high standard of diverse learning experiences making each subject accessible. This will range from pre-online learning to one-to-one coaching.
Modules are assessed through a mixture of group work, coursework, project work and examinations; the weighting of each of these components will vary according to the academic requirements of the module.
