MIT offers many classes in entrepreneurship MIT’s credo, mens et manus, mind and hand, percolates through MIT’s entrepreneurial culture and our many entrepreneurship courses. This core ethic - to carefully examine a problem, design and iterate a solution, and passionately implement it - is what drives our entrepreneurship students and faculty. Our academic faculty are thought leaders examining how and with what effects innovation is turned into opportunities to create new goods and services. Our practitioner faculty are successful entrepreneurs, investors, business and non-profit leaders that have found and grown significant innovation-based ventures. The entrepreneurship courses reflect this blend of analysis and implementation and are focused on exposing students to the foundations and practices of successful entrepreneurial careers, while also providing in-depth study in industries of interest to students.
To provide guidance on the many possible routes through the curriculum, below is a map to help guide you through the offerings. Most of the offerings are designed for MIT Sloan graduate students. However, we ensure space for and enthusiastically welcome masters and PhD candidates from all parts of MIT, including the other four academic schools: Architecture and Planning, Engineering, HASS, and Science. Some of the courses are open to advanced undergraduates with the permission of the instructor, or as part of the MIT Sloan management major or minor.
All the courses noted in the map are elective offerings and represent a suggested route, but do not constitute a formal concentration. For MBA students interested and committed to an entrepreneurial career path, the MIT Sloan MBA E&I Track prescribes some of the entrepreneurship electives, starting in the first semester, and forms the basis for a sequence of courses that lead to a Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, in addition to the MIT Sloan MBA degree.
