The opportunity to make your idea a reality
Laurier is a leader in entrepreneurship education as a founding academic partner of Communitech, Waterloo Region’s industry innovation centre, and with the Schlegel Centre for Entrepreneurship & Social Innovation being one of Canada’s longest running post-secondary organizations dedicated to entrepreneurship education.
Our unique MBA in Entrepreneurship is designed for innovative individuals that have an existing or potential business idea. Students will receive mentorship from a distinct group of community partners, service providers, world-renowned faculty, and a network of Laurier Alumni entrepreneurs. In addition, students will have the opportunity to work at the Communitech Hub, an industry-led innovation centre that is an incubator for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. Students will network, brainstorm, and be immersed with other like-minded, talented, and hard-working individuals while enrolled in this specialization.
To complete the MBA in Entrepreneurship, interested students are required to submit an application with their individual, or group business idea (during Fall term), and upon receipt of acceptance will proceed through the pre-determined elective courses, while simultaneously having the opportunity to create, and expand on a business idea of their own for course credit in their MBA degree.
