Start a business, learn about yourself, test your business potential and earn an MSc. This unique, action-learning degree provides an exciting opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship through practice. It is aimed at those who want an intensive action-oriented approach to the principles of contemporary entrepreneurship, or those who want to start a business, as part of a vibrant community of fellow entrepreneurs, with all the advantages of the best, most current research and thinking by the world’s leading academics and practitioners in this field.

This course is based around the creation of a new business venture. You will learn through a cycle of research, decision, action and reflection. You will have to understand and apply theory, do your own research and form your own judgements throughout the process. You will become adept at justifying and presenting your product and your business intentions to a range of stakeholders to demonstrate your competence and earn their trust.

Our vision is that by the end of this programme you will have created a new growing business, the skills, ability and confidence to create new businesses going forward and a network of vital contacts in the dynamic North East and UK start up communities – and a Master’s degree from the Business School of the Year.

As well as this you will have been on a demanding journey of self-discovery which will enable you decide whether being an entrepreneur is right for you in the long term and if so what type of business you want to run, or work for.

This course will give you experience in setting up and running a business. It develops knowledge, skills and competence in the areas of personal development, innovation, product design, leadership, marketing, management and strategy. You will develop research skills through reading, search, data gathering and surveying. Your business won’t survive unless you constantly monitor your customers, your business development and your own performance. You will practice critical thinking, and effective organisational improvement techniques as well as exploring all the personal competences associated with entrepreneurship in a complex, dynamic start-up business of your own choosing.
