Best Master programmes in Entrepreneurship EU


Arthius

Hi everybody,

I am looking for a Masters in Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Europe, taught in English (interested in creating my own business ventures; tech mostly). I was wondering if you can give me more insight on what schools currently have the best reputation for such a programme.

Here is the list that I have by now:
ESCP - MS Innovation and Entrepreneurship
EDHEC - MSc in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management
HEC Paris - MS Entrepreneurs
Warwick - Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Manchester - MSc Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship

Any kind of help is much appreciated.

Thank you.

I don't know how you missed out EMLyon. Solvay has interesting curriculum design. Cass is part of a highly entrepreneurial university so i would look at the whole context there. Does Manchester still offer the Masters in Enterprise degree? That is very impressive and largely based outside the business school (which just sacked 40 of its 90 staff). Edinburgh is also worth considering. There is also a great joint program in Italy: University of Trento and the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (like an Italian grande Ecole).

Thank you for your reply.

Your options are interesting as well, I am going to have a better look at them. Right now, I am trying to shorten the list.

For example, is EDHEC worth considering? Are all of the options that I've listed worth it?

Thanks.

You have picked good options, yes, but i think it is a risky year to attend.AMBS.

Would you have the time to elaborate a bit? Why is it a risky year (2017)?

Thank you.

Because they just decided to sack 40 of their 104 senior academics. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/may/10/university-of-manchester-to-axe-171-staff-amid-brexit-concerns

Your mention of EDHEC also makes me think of the SKEMA MSc. Under their previous names, Theseus and CERAM, the two schools shared the same building in Sophia-Antipolis as the Centre de perfectionnement aux affaires. The SKEMA team have this MOOC, to give you a flavour: https://www.udemy.com/entrepreneurial-mindset-and-toolkit/

Thank you for the reply.

If you would have to choose the best 5 programmes out of those forementioned options, what would they be? A small explanation of your choices would be great as well, if that's possible.

Thanks.

I think it depends a lot on the nature of the business you are planning, where the resources will be and so on. Other things being equal, the Lyon global entrepreneurship masters is outstanding for a global focus; the Solvay-MiP program is great for Europe.

I am planning to create and manage globally oriented software/IT products and services. I already have previous technical experience as a software engineer.

Are there any schools or programmes that are paricularly suitable to my situation?

In would focus on the EMLyon global programme and the MiP/Solvay programme. I sent our operations manager onto UCL MSc in entrepreneurship, which is very tech focussed, and that worked very well.
