Get a unique opportunity to build your skills as an entrepreneur, and work in diverse teams applying technology for the benefit of people, society and the world.

The Technology Entrepreneurship programme from Technical University of Denmark (DTU) leads to a Master of Science (MSc) in Technology Entrepreneurship with the Danish title cand.tech.

Throughout this 2-year entrepreneurial journey, you will accelerate your learning through doing. Academic learning and hands-on training combine to support your transformation into a technology entrepreneur. You will be part of a team working together in an all-in-one campus equipped with world-class research facilities and your own team start-up lab.

You will experience a challenging yet supportive environment where you work with others to solve problems and build something new, push boundaries, get uncomfortable, realize control is just an illusion, and get back up each time you fall, until you are standing strong alongside your team, on a socially and economically viable business idea.

Regardless of your academic background, you will become more fluent and literate in transformative technologies such as AI, machine learning, IoT, and blockchain throughout the programme, and graduate with a Master of Science, Technology Entrepreneurship (cand.tech).


As an MSc Technology Entrepreneurship graduate, you will either launch your own start-up, become an intrapreneur, Innovation Manager, Business Developer, or work as an entrepreneurial leader, manager, or change-maker in large corporations.

As a technology fluent, creative problem solver, your skills will be highly sought after by start-ups, established companies, and organisations. Your ability to master soft and hard skills, work with team members from diverse backgrounds, from engineering to anthropology, and bridge technology and market, not only makes you an ideal candidate but also fit for the future.
