The Master of Entrepreneurship (MsE) at the University of Michigan was designed for students interested in pursuing technology entrepreneurship or assuming leadership positions in innovative technology-based organizations. Enrollees must have earned an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university, many held advanced degrees.


Our enrollees would answer “yes!” to these questions:

  • Am I passionate about launching or working for a technology-based start-up?
  • Would I take a job in a small, high potential firm for 80% of market salary plus stock?
  • Do I love technology, but want to go beyond invention to application and commercialization?
  • Am I willing to take risks for a potentially very high return, and then work hard to succeed?

The University of Michigan Entrepreneurship program was designed to:

  • Provide students with a comprehensive understanding of technology opportunity identification and implementation
  • Educate students in the customer-focused approach to product development
  • Provide students with entrepreneurial business skills for venture creation
  • Provide students with the opportunity to integrate the key principles of entrepreneurship and technology development and experience the added-value of this cross-disciplinary approach.

By learning how science creates value in the marketplace, graduates of the MsE program are prepared to develop and launch disruptive, scalable ventures that address a societal need.

When we interviewed technology entrepreneurs prior to designing our new Master of Entrepreneurship (MsE) program, we found that most of them had started working on their ventures without enrolling in courses or pursuing business degrees, and they learned by doing. While they eventually learned by trial and error, many false starts and redirections could have been avoided with more complete instruction and mentoring.

The curriculum they needed did not exist, the comprehensive skill set they required was not available in college classrooms. That is why the MsE program is necessary. By understanding the principles underlying venture start-ups many errors can be avoided, shortening the “school of hard knocks” into an accelerated track to an entrepreneurial life.

Universities are in the business of translating art into science, of taking things that one might learn by lengthy trial and error and creating the theoretical underpinnings that help students understand not just what to do but why things work that way. 

Students who understand the fundamental principles underlying technology translation will be prepared not just for their first launch, but for a future rich with new ventures.

As one entrepreneur told us, the difference at Michigan is the faculty. Great faculty and great students together are stronger than either in isolation.
