Specific information for this programme

  • Required Degree

    To obtain the degree “Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation”, students must pass all the courses over the two years.

    We also envisage that some students might want to join for year two alone. This means that students can join in Year 1 for the 2 years programme or in Year 2 to do the programme in only 1 year. See below for details on eligibility criteria:

    To enrol into the first year of the programme :

    Students need to have: a BA degree with 180 ECTS in any discipline subject area and a demonstrated entrepreneurial motivation (see below for criteria). The one year option would be appropriate for people who intend to start a business and want to learn the core theories as well as the practical skills involved. Subject to successful completion of courses in year one, students can exit at the end of Year 1 with their awarded credits (normally 60 ECTS in which case they are awarded a Certificate in Entrepreneurship & Innovation).

    To enrol only for the second year of the programme :

    Students need to have:

    a 4-year BA degree (in any topic) with 240 ECTs.
    a 3-year BA and 1-year Masters in a Business and Management topic achieving 240 ECTS.
    OR, 180 ECTs and 3 year’s work experience in a business/organizational setting.
    Applicants who apply directly for Year 2 need to demonstrate 60 ECTS in courses related to finance/marketing/entrepreneurship/innovation/project management topics.
