Startup and EMBA


mark1

Hi all,
I've just started my online startup business based in London (marketplace toward company formation business) and also a company formation business focused on Russia (my partners live in Moscow and have good relationships there). I'm already having good success.
I was reasearching how to increase business traction: since I'm 36y, can you suggest any Emba programs that could help? (My background is on IT, tough)
Regards

Look for programs that have at least some curriculum in entrepreneurship. HEC Paris offers an EMBA that features an entrepreneurship major, I believe.

Cranfield offers an excellent entrepreneurship module, including pitching for live investment (if required), an annual venture day and case studies based on previous start-ups by alumni, including Moonpig and Go Ape.

I think that most EMBAs will have at least *some* entrepreneurship curriculum. I know that participants in the Oxford EMBA program participate in an entrepreneurship project, where they can build a start-up from scratch. Also Warwick offers a number of entrepreneurship electives as well.

Whether these kinds of courses actually lead to viable startups is another question. Ask the schools directly about this.

Personally, I tend to be skeptical that a business management program can actually help build a start-up; accelerators and incubators are often more effective options for aspiring entrepreneurs.

Thanks you all! I'll check the input.

Razor, I m not searching help to build my startup but to grow it in the company formation business, specifically networking. But probably you are right, better investing money in a different way.
