Programme information

Our MSc Entrepreneurial Design Management programme explores the makeup of a successful entrepreneur, and looks to uncover how entrepreneurial behaviour and skills can influence and inform the design process.

This programme builds on the strengths of our Design Innovation programmes, by supporting students to develop the skills required to take an idea from the drawing board to the marketplace. Through a series of individual and group projects, you will analyse entrepreneurial behaviour, and evaluate which contributions lead to the success of new product ideas.

Core study areas include: design thinking; reflection and action; meaning making in design; international project; entrepreneurship; collaborative project; strategy and planning; funding; an individual project (which can be a dissertation or business plan or placement project).

Assessment

Modules are assessed by a combination of essays, group exercises, presentations and time constrained assignments. Subject to your choices, there may also be exams.

Students will be asked to produce project briefs, concept drawings, user scenarios, storyboards, project blogs and multimedia documentation.

 

Entry qualification

Minimum of a lower second class honours degree in design or related subjects.

English Language requirements: IELTS 6.5 overall, with a minimum of 6.0 in each subtest (Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking) or equivalent.

The programme enables you to pursue a broad range of management careers in the private and public sector.
