The MSc in Innovation, Commercialisation and Entrepreneurship, known as the MSc(ICE), is a one-year, taught, multi-disciplinary masters course. The MSc(ICE) will provide you with an integrated professional practice skill-set in the theory and practice of innovation, technology commercialisation and entrepreneurship.
This course, offered through UCCs College of Business and Law, has been developed to meet the emerging opportunities presented by new technologies, growth in knowledge-based and service-based sectors, globalisation, and the increased focus on outsourcing by traditional enterprise. The MSc(ICE) course allows you to consider, create and grow entrepreneurial ventures, both within existing organisations and in high-tech start-ups.
Unique Aspects of the Course
This course offers you the chance to improve your entrepreneurial skills. Two students from the inaugural intake of the MSc(ICE) have been highly commended at the recent Intel Challenge held in Poland.
MSc(ICE) students Gillian Barrett and Brian Corish produced the business plan for Zooplar which was the Irish nominee for the Intel completion. This followed their success at the Enterprise Ireland Think Outside the Box Competition earlier in 2012.
