Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused masters degree that will enhance your employability? This course with advanced practice develops broad business skills as you can choose whether your studies include either an internship, or an applied group consultancy project, enabling you the opportunity to work with a real organisation on a live business problem, developing valuable work experience and business insight.
Specialist modules cover the process and practice of entrepreneurship as well contemporary issues in entrepreneurship. The course culminates in either a dissertation or, if you prefer, a masters project. This course will make you a highly sought after candidate as employers are keen to recruit people who can bring together resources to achieve break-through change and lead new initiatives.
This option offers the opportunity to spend three months gaining all-important work experience and employability skills in a professional work setting. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. Support is provided to help source opportunities and to perfect the applicant CV but ultimately the onus is on the student to secure the internship position.
