The Master of Business Entrepreneurship & Technology (MBET) program is designed for bright, ambitious, creative, and curious team players who have the passion and drive to excel as entrepreneurs both within and outside of existing companies. These students come from all academic disciplines including engineering, business, computer science, math, science, and the humanities and have work experience ranging from 1 to 20 years. They have been selected for their ability to identify problems, assess business opportunities and develop creative solutions.

Each academic year, there are two opportunities to leverage the insights and talent of MBET students.

Market Research and Analysis

Focusing on a promising market opportunity for your venture’s launch or expansion, your MBET team will identify the key hypotheses underlying your venture’s success in that market.  They will conduct a thorough industry and competitor analysis and conduct 20 interviews with relevant stakeholders to test the critical hypotheses.

Corporate Innovation

Corporate Innovation Projects (CIP) give students an opportunity to use these skills in an existing corporate context by helping established businesses explore strategic opportunities and threats using the same frameworks used in their own start-ups. The goal of each CIP is to envision a hypothetical technology-enabled venture that could constitute a threat to the company’s existing operations - or an opportunity to expand the client’s own business.
