Foster’s exciting new start-up: Master of Science in Entrepreneurship degree

Master of Science in EntrepreneurshipThe Foster School of Business is happy to announce a new degree, pending approval from the UW Graduate School and Board of Regents. The 12-month Master of Science in Entrepreneurship degree will prepare student entrepreneurs to build high-impact startups. It will offer:

  • Graduate-level education focused on the core foundations of business.
  • Courses centered on the entrepreneurial process and lean thinking.
  • Connections and advice from leading Seattle entrepreneurs and investors.

The Foster School is launching the MS ENTRE due to increased demand for one-year master’s in entrepreneurship programs, according to the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC).

The MS ENTRE will be offered in conjunction with the Foster School’s Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship, building on the already strong track record of entrepreneurship at Foster. The Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship is ranked #16 in graduate entrepreneurship by Entrepreneur Magazine/Princeton Review and #23 in graduate entrepreneurship by U.S. News & World Report.

This degree also reinforces the innovative culture at the University of Washington, which was recently named the #4 most innovative university in the world by Reuters.

    Hi Matt,
    This program is only offered in-person at the University of Washington, partly because of the focus on mentorship and connections with Seattle based entrepreneurs and investors.
