In your first year of the Entrepreneurship programme from the University of Strathclyde, you'll need to take a number of classes offered through our Business & Management (MBM) course.
If you already have postgraduate training in business or social science research methods, you'll be expected to earn a Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Business & Management before you can progress to the PhD.
If you don't have any postgraduate training in business or social science research methods, you'll need to gain a Masters of Research (MRes) in Business & Management before you can progress to the PhD.
These classes provide research training in accordance with the Economic & Social Research Council's (ESRC) guidelines.
You'll also participate in an Entrepreneurship Research class as part of your research methods training. This class introduces you to the breadth of entrepreneurship research.
Years 2 & 3
