The Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology (MBET) program is a graduate business degree for entrepreneurs which combines interdisciplinary courses with practical experiences in venture creation and commercialization, offered in 2 formats:
Full-time program (1 year to complete)
Part-time program (3 years to complete)
In MBET, students learn inside and outside the classroom. Networking, practical experience, and hands-on learning with like-minded people in the Waterloo entrepreneurship community that complement the core Master's-level courses inside the classroom.
Students are immersed in an experiential learning environment:
- Participate in a practicum project within Innovation Hubs in existing organizations where you can mobilize the development of new innovations
- Work directly with early-stage technology startups on the business side of their venture
What makes MBET different?
- The traditional classroom setting is put aside in favour of a startup culture where ideas, failures, and goals are encouraged
- Small classrooms and class sizes make for an intimate, sharing, and supportive environment
- Classes are organized in workshop-mode, not lecture-mode, to promote self-learning
- Learn by working side-by-side with industry leaders — not just through books and assignments
