Study entrepreneurship abroad

An in-depth guide to studying entrepreneurship as an international student.

Entrepreneurship degrees abroad

Entrepreneurship is a business focussed degree program that aims to help you develop an entrepreneurial mindset and give the skills needed to start or run a successful business. You’ll develop a deep understanding of a range of subjects like business, management, marketing, strategy and leadership.

This is an ideal program for innovative and creative students who have a passion for creating value. An entrepreneurship program is a great way to build up and explore your ideas, and expand your business network while learning business skills and theory.

As an international student, you will have the opportunity to study entrepreneurship in countries like the US, Australia, Switzerland and Canada. By studying abroad you’ll get to experience a new culture, and broaden your knowledge by learning about how another country approaches entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship program structure

You can study entrepreneurship at most degree levels including undergraduate and postgraduate. As an undergraduate you can study a bachelor’s as a BA or BSc, depending on the program and university you choose.

Entrepreneurship is a popular joint-honors degree, which means you study it alongside another subject, like marketing, business or engineering.

If you study in the US, you will usually choose entrepreneurship as your major along with other minor subjects and general studies. Most bachelor’s programs will take between three and four years to complete.

At postgraduate level you can study an MSc in entrepreneurship or a related field over one or two years, or some MBA programs include entrepreneurship modules. At doctoral level some universities offer PhDs in entrepreneurship, which will involve at least three years of research.

A lot of your time will be spent in lectures and tutorials, and you’ll also be expected to do a lot of personal study. Most programs will include time spent in work placements where you can gain valuable experience and put what you’ve learned into practice.

The program content and curriculum will be unique to each university and course, and your program will normally be made up of core modules and electives you can choose yourself. Here are some of the subjects you can expect to study on an entrepreneurship program abroad:

  • Introduction to entrepreneurship theory
  • Organizational management
  • Economics and globalization
  • Data analytics
  • Marketing principles
  • Business strategy
  • Innovation
  • Business start-up
  • Networking
