This course develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in entrepreneurship that starts after the first semester.
Specialist modules cover the process and practice of entrepreneurship as well contemporary issues in entrepreneurship. The course culminates in either a dissertation or, if you prefer, a master’s project.
The knowledge you gain will be valuable as a business owner or an employee in both start-ups and established organisations. Employers are keen to recruit people who can bring together resources to achieve break-through change and lead new initiatives.
There is no requirement to have studied business or entrepreneurship at undergraduate level.
The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.
By the end of this course you’ll be in an excellent position to apply for graduate training schemes and graduate roles or to start your own business. Employers value entrepreneurial skills and are keen to hire graduates with entrepreneurial acumen, particularly for roles in consultancy, sales and marketing.
If you decide to start up (or continue) your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.
Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
