Course Summary


This MSc Strategic Business and Entrepreneurship provides you with the knowledge and skillset to accomplish your own entrepreneurial ambitions. If you want to build upon your ideas, seek industry support from the London community, network with like-minded peers, we provide a bespoke offer. Likewise, if you are a graduate who is entrepreneurially minded but not yet ready to start your own venture, this programme offers ample opportunity to gain conceptual and practical skills from finance, business plan development through to people management and marketing, all in the context of small businesses and entrepreneurial ventures.

During your first term you will learn about strategy, customers, and how to identify opportunity. Your second term will focus on goods and services sales management, the mechanics of finance and digital marketing.

To complete the postgraduate award your final piece of work will be to deliver a business plan and make a pitch to a select panel. To do this we have teamed up with the Santander Universities Launchpad programme at Roehampton to ensure that you learn business plan skills.

Roehampton has also partnered with Wandsworth Chamber of Commerce so that students can work on real entrepreneurial business cases.

The programme benefits from the Roehampton Business School’s wider start-up activities and its links with the City of London. In addition to the academic course, you will have the opportunity to join our Global Leadership Programme.

This programme is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) meaning that students will be awarded a CMI level 7 certificate in Strategic Management and Leadership Practice.

Career Options

Graduates from this programme are equipped with the skills to launch and scale up new enterprises. Graduates may become entrepreneurs or work in specialist advisory positions in large organisations to promote innovation and entrepreneurial culture. The course is also beneficial for students who would like to grow a family enterprise.


Businesses do not exist in isolation, rather they compete within a complex and sometimes turbulent environment. Consequentially, the strategies of businesses are governed by the dynamics of their competitive environment which ultimately drives their productivity and growth. Taking a micro to macro approach, the module offers you a comprehensive understanding of the environment in which businesses operate. The module examines the environment, both internal and external to the organisation as well as highlighting the impact of business strategies on this environment.? The module will cover both developing and advanced economies, and will address how competitiveness is affected by geography and policy decisions.
