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 16,000 staff and 50,000 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. From the first few weeks, you will be interviewing prospective customers, and subsequently learn how to do ‘rapid prototyping’, using the tools of ‘lean’ entrepreneurship, and pitching new ideas. 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. This programme is about creating ‘for-profit’ enterprises which are committed to the principles of sustainable capitalism. Student overall satisfaction is consistently some of the highest on a master’s programme at UCL. 

A selection of start-ups that have been created by our students and alumni can be found on our Hall of Fame website. 

The MSc Entrepreneurship teaching team is made up entirely of faculty with experience both of academia and of the world of industry and entrepreneurship, including several active venture capitalists and investors. Several of the teaching team have created and very successfully exited from start-ups.  

Students also have the ability to organise treks to visit other start-up ecosystems, which typically travel at the beginning of Term 3. Past treks have visited Barcelona, Berlin, Helsinki, Tallin, Tel Aviv, Silicon Valley and Singapore. A selection of short videos can be found on the course’s YouTube channel. Please note that a place on these treks is not guaranteed, and UCL cannot guarantee right of entry into the countries selected.  

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.
