Entrepreneurship is a major aspect of our economy that offers many employment opportunities as well as income and wealth accumulation for diverse groups within our population. The Master of Science in Entrepreneurship is designed to meet the needs of students who have varied or limited backgrounds in entrepreneurial ventures, are part of family businesses, or are interested in starting or growing their own businesses when they graduate. Students in the program are required to take a minimum of 31.5 credits. In contrast, the MBA in entrepreneurship requires a broader spectrum of business courses. All MS students take the five required courses, as well as choose five electives in the finance, information systems, law, management, human resources management, marketing, public affairs, and real estate areas.

 

English Language Proficiency:*
Students who completed their undergraduate education in a non-English speaking country will be required to take non-credit bearing modules in Grammar Troubleshooting and American English Pronunciation offered by the Division of Continuing and Professional Studies. These modules may be waived based on a waiver exam. The modules are not required for students who completed a four-year degree in an English-speaking country.
