Programme specification:

The MSc Enterprise PT will enable students develop a critical understanding and comprehension of the theory and practice of enterprise on a global scale. It will equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to start, develop and engage in enterprise activities and to effectively exploit business opportunities for economic and social value. They will also be able to critically evaluate different ethical, social and sustainable approaches to enterprise.

This unique programme supports students in developing enterprise skills by providing them with insights into the creation of economic and social value through entrepreneurial activity. This includes the identification of new products, processes and markets to innovatively exploit opportunities. It is delivered by internationally recognised academics and supported by a group of highly skilled entrepreneurs. The programme uses a sound theoretical and research-led approach to develop knowledge and understanding of enterprise and entrepreneurship. The Leeds Enterprise Centre uses cutting edge action-based teaching techniques in order to stimulate and enhance students’ skills development. The programme allows them to experience the ‘real world’ challenges of enterprise, both locally and globally. The distinctive ‘Enterprise Project’ gives them the chance to apply their skills and critical understanding. As part of a multidisciplinary team, they will undertake a strategic developmental role within an organisation.
Completion of the MSc Enterprise PT will provide students with the knowledge and confidence to achieve economic and social impact. It is designed specifically for students who aspire to start their own business or social enterprise, develop an existing family firm or start a career in corporate venturing. Graduates from the programme will be equipped to succeed in a wide range of competitive environments and be able to draw on a number of key transferable skills to exploit global opportunities. Students with a background in Business or Management are desirable although applicants from other disciplines will be considered.
