​Master of Science in Management in Entrepreneurial Leadership

The Master of Science in Management in Entrepreneurial Leadership (MSEL) is a nine-month, cohort-based program that prepares students to lead in the workplace and world with confidence, creativity, and a focus on social, economic, and environmental responsibility and sustainability.

The program consists of two, 14-week semesters during which students will take an integrated set of courses in marketing, economics, accounting, operations, management, finance, and strategy.
