About the Program

The Entrepreneurship Concentration will empower you with the skills and knowledge you need to start your own business. You will learn everything from the ideation stage and development to hiring your own team and managing operations. 

From the initial spark of an idea to the day-to-day operations of running a thriving enterprise, every aspect of the entrepreneurial journey is meticulously explored and dissected.

At the heart of this concentration lies the process of ideation, where you'll learn to cultivate creativity and identify opportunities in the market landscape. Through brainstorming sessions, case studies, and real-world simulations, you'll sharpen your ability to spot gaps in the market and craft innovative solutions to address them. From there, you'll delve into the nitty-gritty of business development, mastering the art of crafting a solid business plan, securing funding, and navigating the legal and regulatory landscape.

But entrepreneurship isn't just about ideas and plans; it's about execution. That's why this concentration goes beyond theory to provide hands-on experience in building and managing a business. You'll learn how to assemble and lead a high-performing team, cultivate a culture of innovation and excellence, and adapt to the ever-changing demands of the market. Through immersive projects, internships, and mentorship opportunities, you'll gain the practical skills and confidence needed to turn your entrepreneurial dreams into a thriving reality.

  • Ideation and Design Formation
  • Professional Networking 
  • Business Plan Development

"From my first day on campus, my experience at MCB has been more than I could have imagined. I cannot think of one teacher that doesn't have experience outside of the classroom, which is what I like most about MCB. The experiences and stories shared by professors make class more interesting and allow me to relate to what they are teaching. They tell you that they put their students first, and they have all followed through with that by going out of their way to make sure I succeed."
