MM in the field Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation
The WBS Master of Management in the Field of Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation (MM-ENVC) degree provides a graduate with a solid foundation of knowledge in all aspects of entrepreneurship, with an emphasis on building entrepreneurial skills in a start-up context.
This dynamic course merges real life case studies with entrepreneurship theory and practice. The degree is strongly research-focused because “good science is good conversation.”
The MM is a combination of course work and a research report, providing you with a comprehensive theoretical and practical framework on which to launch a successful career. Learn the key concepts behind entrepreneurship, evolve your strategic, critical and analytical thinking, and take the first step towards ensuring your ongoing success as an entrepreneur.
The MM-ENVC degree is focused on systemic, high-impact entrepreneurship. Empower yourself and capitalise on your entrepreneurial potential!
