Entrepreneurship, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
University rank #601 (QS) , NY,
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.


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. 

Students in the program are required to take a minimum of 31.5 credits. In contrast, the MBA requires a broader spectrum of business courses. All MS students take the six 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.

Zicklin's MS degree programs offer in-depth study in a range of areas. Unlike the broader MBA curriculum, students are often not required to do coursework in disciplines included in the MBA core. The MS is a more focused degree and usually requires fewer courses (generally between 10 and 16). MS degree programs are available in the Flex-Time format permitting students to study full or part time and to switch schedules as their needs require. Please consult the detailed information on each MS program since start dates vary.

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.
