Business Creation Program Adding New Online Option

Entrepreneurs, fire up that laptop. The U’s one-of-a-kind Master of Business Creation (MBC) program will soon be offering a virtual option. Starting in January 2023, startup founders can enroll online in this program from the David Eccles School of Business. “We know founders are busy and need flexibility to get the support they need, and that is why we created this new option,” says Rachel Hayes, dean of the David Eccles School of Business.

The online program expands on the successful in-person option. It offers the same benefits, intense focus on the founder’s startup, applied curriculum, personalized mentorship, substantial scholarships, peer support and discussion, access to $5 million in startup funding, and more.

The online option allows founders to complete the program on a part-time basis with a flexible schedule and over a longer period. The online program can be completed in 14 months compared to nine months for the full-time, in-person option.

The MBC is an academic offering of the Department of Entrepreneurship & Strategy in partnership with the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. Both are part of the Eccles School, which is ranked among the top 10 schools for entrepreneurship by U.S. News & World Report. Learn more about the MBC program and apply at
