MBA Students

The Tepper School's MBA Entrepreneurship in Organizations Track allows Tepper School MBA students to focus on planning, funding and building a new business. This track emphasizes three main areas: marketing, building a winning organization and raising money for your venture. Students in this track may also apply to the James R. Swartz Entrepreneurial Fellows program, which enables them to participate in an executive guest-speaker, summer-internship and final-project program. Often, this final project results in an actual venture that students pursue after graduation.

Non-MBA Graduate Students & Undergraduate Students

Entrepreneurship courses are not just for MBA students. Entrepreneurship is interdisciplinary and crosses all departments and levels of academic study at Carnegie Mellon. The Donald H. Jones Center for Entrepreneurship encourages students of all disciplines to study entrepreneurship by working with schools across campus to cross-list entrepreneurship courses and make them as available as possible to all students.
