Course Summary

The Master of Studies in Entrepreneurship is an academic programme focused on developing impactful entrepreneurs.

The aim is to teach the knowledge and skills required through a combination of online courses and practical activities.  The programme combines an academically rigorous curriculum with a learning-by-doing approach facilitated by mentors, peers and industry practitioners.


The programme is designed to instil the knowledge, skills and mindset needed to thrive in an entrepreneurial environment. The impactful results of the programme are achieved through the use of three complimentary components:

  • Academic rigour creates clarity of thought and the ability to make fast, actionable decisions
  • Practical workshops and industry-focussed seminars provide insights into real-life challenges and solutions used by entrepreneurs
  • The collaborative network of the programme guided by experienced mentors provides essential support.

Academic Teaching

The academic part of the programme is not just about learning theory, instead, it is aimed at providing clarity of thought in a confusing world. The faculty at the Cambridge Judge Business School offer the latest academic thinking and frameworks to help students to chart their own path. The blended learning environment combines face-to-face interactive teaching with distance learning that incorporates video, text and small group work to provide the most useful and rigorous experience that still allows the flexibility and real-time application enabled by a part-time programme.

Practical Application

The practical part of the programme will allow students to apply the academic knowledge in real-time. Students will meet industry practitioners and learn about emerging entrepreneurial challenges they are facing or have faced, and the solutions they found to overcome them. These interactions will help students to expand not just their industry-specific knowledge but also shape the way they approach their own venture challenges.


It is essential for entrepreneurs to build a vibrant network to allow them to discover new opportunities, raise their profile and increase the visibility of their business. To facilitate the process of quickly building a valuable network, students will be brought into contact with alumni, industry experts, interactive seminar trainers and mentors during the many events offered during the residential weeks. These interactions afford you the opportunity to broaden students’ own network.


The primary approaches to teaching and learning are:

  • Taught sessions by academics and leading practitioners
  • E-learning, including online content based discussions
  • Group work, involving dialogue, debate and presentations throughout the taught modules
  • Individual work, involving research and written presentation of findings on selected topics
  • Support and facilitation by a CJBS team of faculty, tutors and supervisors
  • Supplemental online materials and collaborative e-learning to maximize knowledge sharing
  • Group projects
