The Thomas S. Johnson Master of Science in Entrepreneurship Program (MSE) is where the principle and practice of entrepreneurship seamlessly intersect. Through a stimulating curriculum and transformational experiential learning opportunities, this one-year, intensive program equips promising entrepreneurs with the skills and savvy to plan, launch and sustain innovative ventures on their terms. Three-piece suits and old-school methods are not the norm here. Big ideas and a bold confidence are our prerequisites.
A departure from typical graduate business programs, the MSE Program awakens the entrepreneurial spirit through its dynamic experiential learning programs including GatorNest, where students collaborate with area startups; the Integrated Technology Venture Program, which brings together business, law and engineering students to commercialize university technology; and the Lean Entrepreneurship Accelerator Program, where students receive early stage proof-of-concept funding and incubation to launch their own ventures. These inspiring initiatives, along with the program’s emphasis on global perspectives and social responsibility, validate the MSE Program as one of the nation’s premier graduate entrepreneurship experiences.
Through the support of the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center, MSE students are fully immersed in the entrepreneurial mindset through exciting programs like the Big Idea Gator Business Plan Competition, JumpstART, TEDxUF and more.
