MBA - Entrepreneurship Specialization
If you think you have a good idea for a new business, think again before investing your life savings. Successful entrepreneurs recognize a "good opportunity," because a good idea is rarely the same thing as a good investment opportunity.
Baylor MBA students who specialize their program in entrepreneurship also learn how successful entrepreneurs gain access to the resources needed; launch their venture; grow their business; and, finally, exit their business.
In fact, Baylor Business has long been recognized as a leader in entrepreneurial study. In 1977, we offered our first entrepreneurship course as part of the MBA curriculum. In 1979, we added both graduate and undergraduate majors, and in 1981, an endowed Center for Entrepreneurship was established.
Today, Baylor's MBA program offers a specializaion in corporate entrepreneurship.
