The course offers plenty of opportunity to interact with other students and build your network. Discussion forums enable you to engage in peer-to-peer conversations, forming an integral part of your learning and development.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT


We know that the key reason for studying management is to develop your career. We’ll support you to develop the skills and abilities you need to realise your career ambitions. As well as providing the teaching and experience to further your career, we can help you improve your CV and find your perfect job.

We don’t expect all our students to become entrepreneurs. Some end up becoming consultants or strategists. It’s more important that they develop an entrepreneurial mindset, so they have the capacity to make new things happen and find ways to bring new ideas to fruition.

Support for entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurship is an important theme at the University of Bath. Many of our graduates end up becoming entrepreneurs and business innovators. If you’re keen to start your own business, we can support your entrepreneurial goals.

I took the MSc in Entrepreneurship and Management primarily as a bridge to a job…Being part of the School of Management really helps you to decide what you want to do next. There are lots of extra activities and you get assigned a careers adviser who will sit with you and discuss your short-term and long-term options.
