MSc Management (Entrepreneurship)
Available from 2013, this one-year, full-time programme is primarily aimed at new or recently qualified graduates from any discipline with a strong desire to set up their own business.
The core focus of this programme is to enable you to launch, develop or invest in successful new ventures, or incorporate entrepreneurial thinking into the management of existing organisations.
The programme is designed to introduce you to the broad field of business and management, before specialising in entrepreneurship.
You study a mix of core modules in entrepreneurship and general management, elective modules and a dissertation or business project or self-sourced placement that is explicitly focused on entrepreneurship:
Term 1 Modules
|Term 2 Modules|
|Term 3 - Dissertation|
The programme culminates in a 10,000 word dissertation on entrepreneurship which provides an opportunity for you to investigate in greater detail a subject that you have already studied as part of your programme.
Elective modules reflect current managerial thinking, academic debate and the research interests of the School; as such they are subject to change. Those currently on offer include:
- East Asian Business and Management
- Further Topics in Entrepreneurship
- Business Ethics 2: Society and Sustainability
- Business Transformation through Information Systems
- Buyer Behaviour and Marketing Communications
- Global Marketing
- Innovation and Technology Management
- Work and Society
- Corporate Governance
- Practising Social Marketing
This is a new programme, linked to recent appointments of high-profile academic faculty in the field of entrepreneurship, but it also marks a return for Durham to one of its historic areas of expertise. Durham is where much of the foundational research into entrepreneurship took place. This programme reflects that excellence.
