Programme information

Entrepreneurship is the focus of this programme. You will learn about the practicalities and challenges of establishing and running your own product design or manufacturing business.

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.
