MSc Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Design Part-Time

Programme Overview

Create your own tech start-up while earning a Smurfit Master's in a structured and supported environment with world class mentors and lecturers guiding you along the way.

This part-time Master’s is ideally suited to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) graduates who have a minimum of three years’ work experience who want to play a leading role in creating new knowledge-based businesses. The unique design combines the academic rigour and theoretical grounding of a traditional Master’s with extensive practical experience involving the creation of actual new ventures or new lines of business inside a firm.

The course is delivered and supported by highly experienced international academic faculty members and leading practitioners within the innovation and entrepreneurship eco-system.

Participants benefit from the combined expertise of three leading Irish institutions: Smurfit School’s strength in core business and innovation management, National College of Art and Design’s industrial design expertise, and input from experts at NovaUCD, our leading incubator of technology firms.

The two-year, part-time format involves twice-weekly evening classes and is structured to facilitate study, practice and professional life.
