Building an enterprise from the ground up is the ultimate career aspiration for many but, alongside passion, innovation and hard work, business startup success requires a set of key business skills.

Developing these skills can turn an ambitious professional into a formidable entrepreneur, equipped with the tools to bring new initiatives to fruition. What’s more, these skills are valuable whether you are looking to start your own business or not - established organisations are also seeking to hire those with entrepreneurial spirit and experience.

So, what exactly are the skills needed to become an innovative entrepreneur and how can you gain them? Designed for ambitious professionals, our Entrepreneurship Management and Innovation online MSc offers a way to hone your creativity and resourcefulness without interrupting your career. Here are three reasons to consider this exciting online course.

It will change the way you think

There’s more to entrepreneurship than having a good business idea. A successful entrepreneur knows how to take a good business idea and make it happen; they have what’s needed to achieve the practical steps that turn innovation into tangible results.

Our online MSc outlines these steps - such as making a compelling business pitch, mastering the power of persuasion, and risk assessment - and encourages students to look at barriers to success in an agile and inventive way. Not only will you learn what’s involved in creating new business initiatives, you’ll foster the confidence and tenacious, solution-focused attitude all entrepreneurs need.

You will learn from expert faculty with business pedigree

The curriculum of our online MSc is brought to life by a team of lecturers and guest speakers with an impressive range of experience and expertise. With strong industry links and business research backgrounds, the course’s academics belong to the prestigious Bath School of Management, which holds EQUIS accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), the leading international accreditation for business and management schools.

The University of Bath has received significant official recognition too, including being ranked second for Business and Management Studies in the Complete University Guide 2020, and third in the UK for business, management and marketing in the Guardian University Guide 2020. With 24/7 access to course content via our active learning environment, you can benefit from expert entrepreneurial teaching from anywhere in the world.

You can apply new entrepreneurial skills immediately

The flexibility of online learning offers budding entrepreneurs maximum vocational freedom. Being able to plan your own study schedule allows you to continue developing your business or working in your role at the same time, without having to interrupt your career plans.

Working and studying simultaneously also enables you to apply your newly-acquired entrepreneurial know-how to your career straight away, while it’s fresh. Your blossoming business concept or enterprise can become the proving ground for innovative new approaches and creative thinking. Alongside a cohort of fellow online learners, you’ll benefit from a live melting pot of pioneering ideas capable of taking your business to the next level.
