Course and Module Details
This MSc Strategic Business and Entrepreneurship provides you with the knowledge and skillset to accomplish your own entrepreneurial ambitions. If you want to build upon your ideas, seek industry support from the London community, network with like-minded peers, we provide a bespoke offer. Likewise, if you are a graduate who is entrepreneurially minded but not yet ready to start your own venture, this programme offers ample opportunity to gain conceptual and practical skills from finance, business plan development through to people management and marketing, all in the context of small businesses and entrepreneurial ventures.
During your first term you will learn about strategy, customers, and how to identify opportunity. Your second term will focus on goods and services sales management, the mechanics of finance and digital marketing.
To complete the postgraduate award your final piece of work will be to deliver a business plan and make a pitch to a select panel. To do this we have teamed up with the Santander Universities LaunchPad programme at Roehampton to ensure that you learn business plan skills.

These modules are those we currently offer and may be subject to change each year.
