Enterprise

MA

Programme details

  • Study: Full-time
  • Duration: 12 - 16 months
  • Fee: £21,500

Whether you intend to start a new venture, run a creative organisation, or join a family business, an enterprising mind-set is essential. MA Enterprise  provides the vital training to enhance your business acumen so you can become an effective entrepreneur in your chosen field.

The structure has been designed to enable you to specialise in one key enterprise pathway, subject to demand:

  • Creative Industries
  • Family Enterprises
  • New Ventures

More than any other business discipline, entrepreneurialism is about having the right attitude and mind-set. This cannot happen purely within a classroom environment. You need to get your ideas out there, fail early and often, and develop the grit and resilience needed to succeed.

MA Enterprise offers a participant experience that bridges the gap between academia and industry experience.  

 

You will have the platform to test out your ideas, collaborate with peers and mentors, and learn how to solve complex enterprise-related problems.

 

Using a range of case studies, you will examine different business models – from start-ups to high growth organisations. This knowledge will help you to recognise the practical and ethical dimensions of enterprise, giving you the skills to develop effective solutions.

 

You will also learn how to determine the managerial and resource priorities that are required to enable enterprises to operate efficiently, sustainably and successfully. 

 

As an entrepreneur, you must always be ready to talk about your vision. The MA Enterprise will prepare you with the skills to successfully communicate your ideas and attract potential stakeholders and industry partners.
