The MSc Entrepreneurship is a lifelong community. Our alumni continue to participate in the UCL ecosystem, and increasingly are hiring our graduates.
Right from the start of the programme, you will learn the skills and gain the tools to start an innovative, high impact, new business.
From the first few weeks, you will be interviewing prospective customers, and subsequently learn how to do ‘rapid prototyping’, using the tools of ‘lean’ entrepreneurship, and pitching new ideas. Using UCL’s networks and reputation as a starting point to access London’s thriving entrepreneurship scene, you will find or develop a founding team and learn how to raise investor finance, or ‘bootstrap’ your business.
This programme was the first of its kind in Europe, for its single-minded focus on giving you the knowledge, skills, and network to start up a business successfully. We pride ourselves on our rate of successful start-up creation, and every year work to launch more successful start-ups.
On this programme, you will find yourself among like-minded students who will be your allies during your studies – and in some cases, the co-founders with whom you will establish your future business.
The latest rankings from the Complete University Guide (2021) place UCL School of Management 4th (out of 130) in the UK for Business and Management Studies, while the Guardian’s 2021 rankings for Business, Management and Marketing place UCL School of Management 5th in the UK. The MSc Entrepreneurship programme achieved a 95% Overall Satisfaction score in the 2020 Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES), previously 95% in 2019 and 92% in 2018. This is exceptionally strong performance and reflects the outstanding quality of our teaching, culture, and facilities.
If you are not looking to start your own business, you may be better considering our MSc Management programme. Our programme is strictly for entrepreneurs!
It is possible to take the programme for over two years. For 2020/21, around 25% of students were part-time, which has allowed them to continue working whilst studying.
This MSc is heavily oversubscribed each year and has limited spaces available. You are advised to apply early.
Unless taking the degree as a part-time student over two years, remaining in employment whilst studying full-time is not recommended.
The MSc Entrepreneurship was formerly called MSc Technology Entrepreneurship. The name change has reflected the fact that technology is now a feature of almost every start-up business. The programme content remains broadly the same, but has been updated as business and technology continue to evolve.
