About Entrepreneurship at Aston Business School, Aston University

MSc Entrepreneurship is an exciting masters course with a strong focus on the practical application of theory and will equip you with the knowledge and skills to enable you to develop your career as an innovative entrepreneur. This course is ideal if you are thinking about running your own business, looking to start up your own business, want to work as an innovative ‘intrapreneur’ in business, take over a family business, or work in an entrepreneurship and innovation-related sector. Enterprise skills are highly valuable outside of new venture start-ups, as employers are increasingly looking to hire employees with an entrepreneurial mindset.

MSc Entrepreneurship focuses on the development of entrepreneurial skills. Combined with an understanding of the international business environment, these skills are increasingly important for a career in the modern business environment. Entrepreneurial and innovation-driven businesses from mature and emerging economies are increasingly taking advantage of global markets and seeking to improve their international strategies and operations.

You'll develop an understanding of the global business environment and the factors that inform both entrepreneurial business decisions and business organisations conducive to experimentation and change. You'll also gain analytical and strategic skills to enable you to set up and manage new enterprises within a national and international context, and the knowledge required for developing innovation-based business strategies.

MSc Entrepreneurship will enable you to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. The course will prepare you for starting your own business but is equally useful for students who want to become entrepreneurial employees. Entrepreneurial employees are of value to their employers because they are alert to opportunities to differentiate and innovate business activities. An entrepreneurial mindset and attitude will definitely prepare you for a fast-changing market.

Starting a new enterprise requires creativity as well as the analytical skills to evaluate the feasibility and viability of business opportunities. MSc Entrepreneurship will enhance your knowledge of venture creation and business growth strategies. The curriculum also provides plenty of opportunities for the practical application of enterprise skills.

What students think about Aston Business School, Aston University

    Benjamin Soccal - MSc Business Management

    Testimonial from Benjamin Soccal - MSc Business Management , student at Aston Business School

    I selected Aston Business School because its programme includes a set of varied courses providing a very solid background in all business topics. Furthermore, it is organised along the year around a multitude of team projects which helps us to collectively review and apply the concepts learnt in class.

    This Master degree provided me with a strong business education that I was missing after completing my engineering studies. Lastly, students at Aston Business School who come from many different countries which developed my team working skills in a multi-cultural environment.

    Priyadarshini Rangamani - MSc Accounting and Finance

    Testimonial from Priyadarshini Rangamani - MSc Accounting and Finance, student at Aston Business School

    After completing my bachelors in business administration in India, I considered Masters in Accounting and Finance offered at Aston University to be a great opportunity to expand my knowledge in the world of Accounting and Finance at an international level.

    The course helped me to gain the international exposure that I need and also provided me with the ability to work with people from different cultural backgrounds. After my masters the Student Job Shop in Aston helped me gain an internship with Deutsche bank in Birmingham, who then offered me a permanent role. I worked with the investment banking sector of Deutsche bank for two years in Birmingham and six months in Mumbai. I am currently pursuing CIMA Management level.

    Overall studying in Aston has been a wonderful experience and if given a chance I would do it all over again!

    Simon Hague- MBA Full Time

    The programme gave me time to think. This is a luxury that one does not naturally get within the busy working life. It gave me an opportunity to re-assess my priorities and my drivers. It allowed me to answer the question, "What is it that I can do that would really mean something?” This, as well as meeting some amazing people on my course, highlighted the importance of understanding different people in different ways. This flexibility of being able to work with different cultures was such a gift.

    My discovery phase at Aston came from understanding that I wanted to enable others to do even more amazing things with what they do. I work with people, and understanding this, as simple as it sounds, liberated me to go and do something with people
