Washington - Foster Launches Master of Science in Entrepreneurship

12-month program to launch in June, 2017

The University of Washington's Foster School of Business has announced the launch of a new Master of Science in Entrepreneurship.

Taking 12 months to complete, the school is billing the program as an alternative to students with an interest in entrepreneurship who don't want to take two years to do an MBA.

The program will include a hands-on component, where students will be able to work on their own startup ideas. It will cater to a wide variety of students. According to Ben Hallen, assistant professor of entrepreneurship: “We’re looking for recent engineering or science graduates who’ve fallen in love with their senior capstone projects or people who’ve been out of college for 5 to 10 years who want to jump ship and start working on the ideas they’ve had in their heads for some time."

In terms of curriculum, Foster's new Master of Science in Entrepreneurship will cover a range of topics relevant to entrepreneurs and the startup process. Courses will include "Entrepreneurial Marketing," "Essentials of Finance for Entrepreneurs," and "Legal Essentials for Entrepreneurs," among others.

The school's location is also an asset: Seattle, which is considered to be a startup hub and a good place for entrepreneurs to get their startups off the ground. Indeed, with an influx of tech talent drawn by big firms like Amazon and Microsoft, it's not hard to find the right people.

Applications for the Master of Science in Entrepreneurship will open in January, 2017.
