Degree Requirements

The Master of Science in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MS IE) degree is a 36 semester credit hours degree program that prepares students to create new ventures, or pursue successful careers as investment professionals or in innovation related roles with established organizations. The program requires 12 semester credit hours of core courses. The curriculum also provides two concentration areas, the first focuses on entrepreneurial startups (New Venture Concentration), and the second on the challenges of managing entrepreneurial innovation within the more structured environment of a mature organization (Innovation Within the Corporation Concentration).  Students must take a minimum of 12 semester credit hours from the courses within the two concentration areas.

An additional 12 semester credit hours of electives must be taken, including at least one course from the experiential courses (ENTP 6360, ENTP 6365, or ENTP 6398). With advanced permission, ENTP 6392 or ENTP 6V97 may be substituted for one of the experiential courses listed above. The remaining electives may be chosen from any of the concentration area courses not already taken, the other ENTP electives offered, the non-ENTP courses listed as electives below, or, with permission, from any of the other JSOM offerings in the ACCT, BPS, FIN, IMS, MIS, MKT, OB, or OPRE areas.

Students must maintain a 3.0 grade-point average (GPA) in both core courses and in aggregate courses to qualify for the MS degree.

Prerequisites

ENTP 6315 requires that students have completed a course in finance (equivalent to FIN 6301). FIN 6301 requires completion of a course in business statistics (equivalent to OPRE 6301).
