Innovation and flexibility are the secrets to success in today’s vibrant and competitive business environment. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program in Entrepreneurship fosters the enterprising spirit and managerial autonomy that businesses rely on to stay competitive in this dynamic economy. Entrepreneurship no longer refers specifically to the establishment of a new business–it is a generally applicable skill instrumental in any business’ continued development. It is the relentless pursuit of opportunity for the purpose of generating value. The entrepreneurship MBA is therefore an asset both for business owners and for administrators/managers at established businesses that operate on an entrepreneurial model. An MBA with an entrepreneurship specialization focuses on business administration strategies that encourage innovation and flexibility. Coursework covers business fundamentals from an entrepreneurial angle, including financing, organizational structure, strategy, entrepreneurial management, and more. In addition, specialized entrepreneurship courses focus on opportunity recognition and validation, business plan development, and the entrepreneurial process.
Entrepreneurship MBA graduates are positioned for success in dynamic industries such as technology, media, and more. They also offer unique value to larger businesses transitioning to a more flexible business model. Entrepreneurship MBAs generally enjoy strong demand and compensation to match.
