Program Overview

Do you long to strike out on your own? Benedictine's online MBA in Entrepreneurship and Managing Innovation teaches you to manage the risks and challenges of starting or running your own company. You can apply what you learn to your own career whether you are already small-business owner, dream of founding an organization, or work at a start-up.

Coursework consists of a robust business foundation curriculum of the general MBA and three concentration-specific courses in the practices and challenges of entrepreneurship, managing creativity and innovation in business, and securing financing for new ventures.

Along with core coursework in vital business functions, these courses will help you go develop the key skills and abilities you need to start your own company—and keep it running successfully.
