Part-Time Entrepreneurship MBA

Entrepreneurship Class

Entrepreneurship is, at its core, a creative activity. It involves starting a new venture with an innovative idea — frequently for a market that currently does not exist. As a result, the MBA entrepreneurship concentration is built upon courses designed to help you tap into your creativity, and then translate your creative vision into a real business that not only produces wealth, but also allows you to express your personal values.

Your first steps include two courses to assist you in discovering your own brainchild— a personally compelling venture idea with large market potential. These are followed by three courses to help you flesh out a business model that will generate profits, build your organization and make connection with your market. Your final step is a course that pulls it all together, resulting in a business plan that you present to a panel of angel and venture capital investors.
