UCL School of Management

The Fulbright UCL Entrepreneurship Award covers the one-year MSc in Entrepreneurship at the institution's School of Management.

UCL (University College London) is London's leading multidisciplinary university, with approximately 13,000 staff and 44,000 students from 150 different countries. Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class, religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.

The MSc Entrepreneurship is designed for students who intend to start and run high impact, innovative businesses. Right from the start of the programme, you will learn the skills and gain the tools to start an innovative, high impact new business.

Using UCL’s networks and reputation as a starting point to access London’s thriving entrepreneurship scene, you will find or develop a founding team and learn how to raise investor finance or “bootstrap” your business.

Please note this programme is about creating ‘for profit’ enterprises and therefore priority is given to students embarking on and interested in this. It is less suitable for students engaging in social enterprises. Whilst there are elements of sustainable capitalism on the course this is because all start-ups are expected to commit to these principles.

Applicants are required to apply to UCL’s MSc Entrepreneurship programme by January 15 and must complete a video interview with the department during the Fulbright selection process. Failure to do so may result in a disadvantage to applicants’ applications.
