Drawing on Illinois Tech’s Stuart School of Business, Institute of Design, and Chicago-Kent College of Law, the program provides students—particularly those with technical backgrounds—with a comprehensive curriculum to explore innovative, entrepreneurial, and design-thinking approaches in their work.
Collaboration, networking, and mentoring are woven throughout the program, and strong connections with Chicago’s vibrant entrepreneurial community and Illinois Tech’s innovation-focused groups and resources provide a wide range of opportunities for hands-on experiences.
In the capstone project—which accounts for 9–12 of the 30 credits required for the program—students apply their learning and creativity to real-world enterprises, such as building a startup business, bringing new technology to market, or completing an entrepreneurial project within a company or organization.
The Master of Technological Entrepreneurship program at the Illinois Institute of Technology is specifically designed for students with technical backgrounds and the entrepreneurial spirit and drive to create innovative business ventures. Learning is applied and hands-on, drawing on the abundant resources of Chicago’s dynamic network of startups and tech entrepreneurs.
The Master of Technological Entrepreneurship is ideal for students with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics who are looking to gain the necessary business, design, innovation, and legal skills to launch startups and take on leadership positions in small and mid-sized businesses where technology plays a key role.
