To be admitted to the programme you must possess a Bachelor’s degree, though no specific knowledge about economics or business is required. If you have the entrepreneurial drive and talent, we have the programme for you.

The Master Programme in Entrepreneurship from Uppsala University prepares you for a future as founder of your own company or as a business developer in already existing companies and organisations.

The programme allows you to develop your business skills, and above all to understand and manage the inevitable challenges that come with the launching and development of new business ideas. The programme design lets you apply the theories and tools that are taught in a real-life setting. You will be asked to develop a full-fledged business plan either for your own business idea or for an idea conceived by an inventor or company in the Uppsala region. You will also be able to do an internship that allows you to apply your acquired entrepreneurial skills through participation in a live entrepreneurial or development project.

You will enjoy the variety of backgrounds among the programme participants, which gives you access to the diverse skills and competencies that may be needed for your own entrepreneurial ventures. The relationships and personal network you will build with other programme participants will be valuable for your future entrepreneurial and business career.

Your acquired business savvy and entrepreneurial skills will give you a unique edge in whatever you decide to do in the future. You may choose the path of a company founder to develop and grow your own firm, or work for the development of already established companies or organisations. As a company founder, you will launch and develop your own business idea, often together with others in an entrepreneurial team. Within already established companies and organisations you will work as a business developer, either by promoting your own entrepreneurial ideas or by being in charge of the company’s collective business development activities.

The programme leads to a Master of Social Science (60 credits) with Entrepreneurship as the main field of study.

Programme Structure

The start of the first semester covers the fundamental of entrepreneurship, how new business ideas are generated and evaluated, and the translation and description of those business ideas into a business plan.

During the first semester, you will also be trained in rhetoric, or the ability to present arguments and descriptions of new ideas in an inspiring and convincing way. The concluding coursework lets you encounter and learn to handle the various challenges that are associated with bringing a venture from its start-up phase to a well-established company.

During the second semester you may either continue coursework that addresses the challenges of firm growth and business development, or do an internship that gets you in direct contact with a real-life entrepreneurial project in the Uppsala region. In the concluding course module you will write your Master’s thesis. This is an academic piece of work in which you are expected to make a contribution to research or practice within the field of entrepreneurship studies.
