Carnegie Mellon University has just launched an Entrepreneurship Program at its Silicon Valley campus.
The accelerated, full-time program, which will last 12 months, aims to offer students the possibility to learn entrepreneurship practices from one of the most reputable educational institutions while simultaneously germinating their own projects from idea to fruition.
The Entrepreneurship Program offers students a Master of Science in Software Management degree and teaches key skills in management, metrics, product definition, and strategy. In addition to traditional academic instruction, students will be encouraged and required to work in functional teams where they will collaboratively develop their own ideas for new products and services.
In addition, students have the chance to work on existing real-world projects from some of Silicon Valley’s most influential technology leaders.
Throughout the yearlong program, faculty will be joined by guest speakers including VCs, C-level executives and other entrepreneurs.
Classes officially begin August 29th following a mandatory eight-day Idea Workshop, an innovation “boot-camp” that challenges students to dive into an intensive series of faculty-led exercises designed to inspire, inform and jump-start their.
