Programme description

The Master of Enterprise [MEnt] is run jointly by the Department of Chemistry and Manchester Enterprise Centre. The course has been designed to combine Masters level research, sound business theory and the practical enterprise skills needed to apply that knowledge in a business context.

The Master of Enterprise degree reflects the nature of knowledge-based enterprise and innovation. Students develop ideas from their discipline into new products and services. The Department of Chemistry has particular strengths in biological chemistry and organic synthesis, computational and theoretical chemistry, materials chemistry (inorganic and polymer), magnetic resonance and structural chemistry, radiochemistry and environmental chemistry and nanoscience. Manchester Enterprise Centre provides the enterprise element of the course and support in the business development activities undertaken by students. Each student has at least one subject supervisor, an enterprise supervisor and potentially a business mentor from a relevant industry sector.

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.


Manchester Enterprise Centre offer a limited number of scholarships for both UK and EU student.
