About the course


In today’s challenging global economic environment, there is a pressing need to understand how to manage the introduction of the new technologies, systems and services that are vital for opening up new business opportunities.

However, managing the creation, delivery and capture of value from innovation is a complex process, requiring broad-based skills and knowledge.

The MSc Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management has been designed to meet this need. By combining core management courses with advanced insights in innovation and entrepreneurship, it aims to enhance students’ strategic and operational management skills through a unique and highly practical syllabus.

It is intended for recent graduates with no more than three years' full-time work experience. Through its blend of theory and practice, students learn how to manage the resources, people and other assets at the heart of any business, preparing them for a wide range of careers in management.


We are among a handful of business schools worldwide to achieve triple accreditation from Association of MBAs (AMBA)Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS).
