The place to create entrepreneurial futures

Opportunities for students to engage with enterprise and entrepreneurship activities have been enthusiastically developed within the University of Leeds for more than 10 years – both in the curriculum (through the Centre for Enterprise & Entrepreneurship Studies) and as part of business start-up support services (SPARK) – and over that last two years our Centres have won all four major national awards for University and Student Entrepreneurship within the UK for our work in this area, the only University to ever achieve this.

Interested in studying a Postgraduate degree in Enterprise?

The MSc Enterprise and Entrepreneurship will develop understanding of enterprise, entrepreneurship, family business and ‘social enterprise’ on a global scale.

The MSc Enterprise and Entrepreneurship is about helping students develop into successful entrepreneurs; confident in starting their own businesses or in working for an existing business in an entrepreneurial way. It can be taken either full-time (over 12 months) or part-time (over 24 months).

The programme provides a powerful mix of theory and practice and will certainly help students to develop ideas further.  We offer a diverse cohort from many sectors and nations – all with a passion for enterprise and entrepreneurship.  Students enjoy networking with classmates. We have also recently launched a part-time MSc Enterprise and Entrepreneurship that means that we have local entrepreneurs in the class studying alongside the full-time students and adding even greater expertise to the mix.
