For those with a strong commitment to entrepreneurship, the Entrepreneurship & Innovation (E&I) Track brings like-minded students together very early in the MBA program to meet, integrate and learn about startup business concepts and to experience the unique entrepreneurial ecosystem at MIT.
Concepts that typically take the entire program to cover are condensed into the first and second semesters, maximizing students' ability to get started right away. The payoff for the extra work and the intense track requirements is that you will get a jump-start on building an entrepreneurial career.
The E&I Track focuses on launching and developing emerging technology companies. It leads to a certificate in Entrepreneurship & Innovation, in addition to the MBA degree.
The curriculum emphasizes team practice linked to real-world entrepreneurial projects, balances theoretical and practitioner education, and provides thorough exposure to the many building blocks of an entrepreneurial career. In addition, the track leaves sufficient freedom to select other courses.
