Entrepreneurship (M.E.)


Return to Graduate Programs Return to: Graduate Programs

The Master of Entrepreneurship (ME Program) degree is an online program which is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).  The purpose of the program is to offer students the opportunity to acquire the skills necessary to create a sustainable new venture from an idea or concept that is developed during the course of study.

To qualify for Regular Admission, applicants are required to:

Meet the Graduate School Admission Requirements  (candidates for the early admission Masters in Entrepreneurship program do not need to complete their undergraduate degree before admissions to the program, but they must complete their undergraduate degree as a condition for receiving their graduate degree).

Applicants to the Masters of Entrepreneurship program are diverse.  To support the diverse applicant pool, we use a scoring approach that enables applicants to best present their case for admission.  In this approach, students may submit any or all of the accepted materials, including transcript (required), resume (required), essay (optional), interview (optional), GMAT/GRE/MAT scores (optional), recommendations (required for early admissions candidates) and awards.  Each will be scored and a total score given.  That score will be the primary driver of the decision for admission.  Full details are available on the program’s web page.

The Master of Entrepreneurship Program Director will make a recommendation to the Graduate School regarding the type of acceptance or denial for each applicant.  The Dean of the Graduate School will make the final decision to admit the applicant and will issue a letter of acceptance (Regular or Conditional) or denial.

Applicants may qualify for Conditional Admissions status with the recommendation of the Master of Entrepreneurship Program Director.  Conditional Admission status allows the applicant to complete their admissions file (transcripts, recommendation letters, and the GRE/GMAT) by the end of the first semester of enrollment.  Applicants admitted by the Graduate School with Conditional Admission status are eligible to enroll in fall classes.
