Visit the official programme website for more information


You will learn how to combine theoretical knowledge with a special focus on developing the applied skills required to engage successfully in entrepreneurial activity.

The focus of this Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology programme from University of Strathclyde  is the Virtual Incubator Project, during which you will work in groups to take your business idea to the next level. You will develop an innovative business opportunity and pitch to a panel of investors from the UK ecosystem.

By the end of the programme you will possess both the mind-set and skills to 'think and act entrepreneurially'. You will have the opportunity to engage with a dynamic innovation ecosystem through business competitions, guest lectures, knowledge exchange projects and field visits.

Classes in semester 1 cover key elements of entrepreneurship and are shared with students on the MSc Entrepreneurial Management & Leadership . In semesters 2 and 3 the MSc Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Technology will follow a much more ‘hands-on’ practical route through the Virtual Incubator Project. It is possible to swap between programmes at the start of semester 2, based on your preferences and discussions with tutors.

Every class will either have a class test or assignment during semesters 1 and 2. Exams will take place at the end of each semester in December and April/May.


Graduates will be well suited to find employment in a variety of exciting roles. This may involvep:

  • establishing a startup
