Thinking about pursuing that great idea and turning it into a business? How about leading a team, division or think tank within an existing organization? Having the skillset to successfully innovate and lead in these scenarios is essential.
The UCI Master of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MIE) is the only program of its kind in the UC System, and provides extensive integrated and immersive academic and practical experience for students looking to embark on careers as entrepreneurs (innovating to form new companies) and intrapreneurs (innovating within existing companies). The program provides students with knowledge on core topics on the process of innovation and entrepreneurship, including identifying new venture opportunities through lean startup methodology, developing a business model, preparing a business plan, assembling a team, raising the necessary financing including venture capital, and launching a new business. It is also rich in experiential learning opportunities within the UC Irvine entrepreneurial ecosystem.
