The Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of South Florida, in partnership with the Colleges of Business and Engineering, Morsani College of Medicine and the Patel College of Global Sustainability, has established a novel, innovative, and unique major in interdisciplinary Entrepreneurship in Applied Technologies. The Master’s of Science Degree Program in Entrepreneurship in Applied Technologies is a 30 credit-hour major and consists of courses that will consolidate the Entrepreneurship education and training for successful opportunity recognition and development, technology and market assessment, technology commercialization, new venture formation, and new venture financing into a single inter-disciplinary program curriculum utilizing faculty and courses in the Colleges of Business, Engineering, Medicine, and Global Sustainability.
The major is designed such that a student may complete it in a concentrated 12-month period of study or in an 18-month period. In addition, the Masters of Science Degree in Entrepreneurship is designed so that it can be completed as part of a concurrent degree in with a traditional M.A., M.S., M.B.A., M.D., or Ph.D. program. Concurrent degrees include the following: Master in Business Administration (MBA), Biotechnology (M.S.), Information Systems (M.S.), Public Health (MPH), Global Sustainability (M.S.) Environmental Science (M.S.), Civil Engineering (M.S.and Ph.D.), Industrial Engineering (M.S.), Medicine (M.D.), and Biomedical Engineering (M.S. B.E. & Ph.D).
