MSc Digital Business, Innovation & Management


I received an offer from Lancaster University for MSc Digital Business, Innovation & Management and one offer from the University of Surrey for MSc Entrepreneurship & Innovation, and one from the University of Reading for the same program.

I am a product manager in India and I am working in the Tech industry. Can you please suggest a university?

Do you have any goals? Reading, of course, does not have an MSc Entrepreneurship & Innovation. It has Leadership, Financing or Creative Industries pathways, but not innovation. 

For UK employment, I would recommend Lancaster since an IT course is easier to attract employers. Few companies are hiring entrepreneurs.

Currently I am an Associate Product Manger and my goal is to join a tech company in UK for Growth Product Management role. Why I choose these courses because It has modules related to it. 

My goal is not to start a company but in University of Surrey(MSc Entrepreneurship &amp; Innovation) program I found suitable modules. And same in Lancaster(MSc MSc Digital Business, Innovation &amp; Management). From University of Reading - Henley Business School I have an offer for Masters in Information Management &amp; Digital Business – Digital Innovation.

When I checked data on FT, I found that, Lancaster is good in terms of placement.

Yes, an IT course is easier to attract employers and That's why I am confused between Surrey and Lancaster. Because modules are good in both courses but in Surrey degree is Entrepreneur and I doubt, companies will not hire. 

Also, I found that International students are not going to Lancaster because of Location and they are choosing Surrey, Exeter etc.

Henley and Lancaster are great schools with well designed courses. Britain is a tiny island and Lancaster is almost exactly in the middle, on the railway main line service from Glasgow to London. Focus on the best school for you goals, not the location of the city.

Lancaster, Reading and Guildford all seem to have fairly average levels of unemployment. I don't think there's a big difference between those cities in terms of the availability of part-time work. Reading has the most students and Lancaster has the fewest, so that might influence competition.

Focus on schools with AACSB, AMBA or EQUIS accredition. The schools you have discussed previously have all three. Heriot Watt has none of them.
