Entrepreneurship at Santa Clara University - really

Yes, you can be entrepreneurial in a large (old) organization.  Santa Clara University (SCU) has developed a Master’s of Science in Entrepreneurship with an emphasis in Global Innovation (MSE-GI).  This isn’t the first time that SCU’s Leavey School of Business has been entrepreneurial.  In 2010, the school launched CAPE, an entrepreneurship education program for non-matriculating students.  The fifth cohort started this summer with 50 participants.  In 2013, the Master’s of Science in Finance and Master’s of Science in Entrepreneurship started.  The MSE-GI is an overhaul of last year’s MSE; however, this time the program is focused in both scope and market.

The MSE-GI program is a 12-month, full-time post baccalaureate degree program for international students in Silicon Valley. The program integrates course work and internships to equip students with business skills and practical experiences necessary for successful careers in a range of organizations from start-ups to established market leaders. International students will be immersed in the business landscape, culture, and network of Silicon Valley and study under prominent Silicon Valley scholars, gain experience with local firms and network with business leaders. Additionally, students will gain the skills and contacts to enable them to lead entrepreneurial projects and intrapreneurial opportunities.

SCU was founded in 1851 in the heart of Silicon Valley. The university now has over 8000 students across undergraduate and graduate degree programs. 

The first cohort will begin in June of 2015.
