The MS in Entrepreneurial Leadership curriculum is designed to develop the competencies needed to successfully create and manage new ventures or to be a driver of innovation within existing enterprises. Emphasis is placed on leadership in three areas: conceiving, exploiting, and managing opportunities. Graduates of this program are provided with the tools to plan for new business start-ups, become leaders in high growth firms, or to become corporate intrapreneurs capable of improving an organization’s ability to innovate.
