Programme overview

Our MSc in Management (with specialism in Entrepreneurship) is an intensive one-year programme that offers you a unique opportunity to develop your knowledge and understanding of small business enterprise and entrepreneurship, while gaining a thorough grounding in the core theories and concepts that are central to a career in management today. It will be of particular interest to graduates looking to start their own enterprise, whether that be an online business, a family firm or even a social enterprise.

You will start by studying management theory across a range of core disciplines, including finance and accounting, organisational behaviour and strategic management. In term two you will gain a deeper insight into entrepreneurship then in the summer term the dissertation provides an opportunity for independent research and in-depth investigation into a particular aspect of entrepreneurship.

Our programme is designed for graduates of any discipline who aspire to a career in management. It is not necessary to have any prior academic or practical experience in business or management. However, you would benefit from having an inquisitive mindset and a genuine interest in interrogating research in the field to develop your knowledge and understanding for use in later practice.

You will be part of a dynamic and diverse body of staff and students in Bristol, and be taught by experienced academics. Many staff within our School of Economics, Finance and Management are actively engaged in conducting pioneering research at international level, and our school was ranked sixth in the UK for its research impact (REF 2014), reflecting the quality and contribution our research plays in shaping policy and practice in the UK, Europe and globally.

Programme structure

In term one you will study four core management units. In the second term, you will deepen your understanding of entrepreneurship by studying two core units that are central to this specialism. This will be supported by choosing two further management units that will broaden your skills and give further opportunity to tailor your studies to your own interests and career aspirations.

The final part of the MSc is a project-based dissertation of between 12,000 to 15,000 words in which you will research a current theme or topic in entrepreneurship. You will be able to tailor your investigation to a setting that reflects your personal interests or future career aspirations. The dissertation provides the perfect opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge you have learned in both the management and the entrepreneurship aspects of the programme. It is also a powerful way of showcasing your talent to future employers, providing you with the confidence and platform to launch your own business ideas.
