Management—Entrepreneurship

How is Management with Entrepreneurship Concentration at Michigan Tech Different?

The Michigan Tech management major with concentration in entrepreneurship helps students get their disruptive business ideas off the ground with small class sizes, experiential learning, and financial opportunities. Learn how to make a business plan, hire employees, and stay on top of innovation trends–everything you need to know to launch your high-tech ideas with success.

Michigan Tech faculty nurture students' ideas. Classes help students establish crowdfunding success, and Enterprise projects challenge teams to innovate and pitch to real clients—practical preparation for a future in business.

What You Need to Know

Starting a business requires learning, planning, and networking. Michigan Tech's partnership with the National Science Foundation's I-Corps program helps students find markets for their inventions as an experiential learning project integrated into the entrepreneurship concentration.

Opportunities and Experiences for Tomorrow

Live, learn, and grow alongside like-minded students inside the Innovation Center for Entrepreneurship (ICE) House. This on-campus residence promotes innovation through entrepreneurship and group collaboration. Powerful innovation occurs when a diverse group of students live near each other, sharing in challenges and success, pooling knowledge and expertise, and living with a common purpose to create the future.
