You’re an entrepreneur at heart – either an aspiring one or already running a business. To grow as a business leader, you need to broaden your perspective. Gain a competitive advantage at one of the few schools in the country with Entrepreneurship in its name.
The M.B.A. with a major in Entrepreneurship provides you with the advanced business expertise you seek, but with a focus on entrepreneurial development. You’ll learn from industry leaders who’ve operated profitable companies themselves, giving you an edge to successfully running your business.

In addition, you’ll gain the expertise to create business plans, participate in consulting assignments for real businesses with real problems, and build an impressive portfolio.
Ultimately, you’ll learn how to start a business, acquire an existing business, or run a division of a large corporation, so you can grow financially and as a leader. It’s all part of the NSU Edge.
