MBA (Entrepreneurial Studies) - ENY

MBA (Entrepreneurial Studies)

Entrepreneurs are essential to our society. They foster technological and social change, and their innovation and creativity forge our future. The Rothman Institute of Entrepreneurial Studies, a top-20 entrepreneurship program, assists FDU students in achieving their entrepreneurial goals.

The MBA in entrepreneurial studies focuses on class work and outreach programs that provide students with the opportunity to learn and practice entrepreneurship in a real environment. It offers a thorough and practical understanding of the issues involved in both starting a business and fostering innovation in a corporate setting.

Classes are taught using a combination of lectures, case studies, team exercises, guest speakers and fieldwork. This major allows students to draw from a variety of carefully selected courses to become business generalists, well-versed in organizing and managing resources. Entrepreneurial studies graduates typically start their own successful ventures or pursue “intrapraneurial” careers with major corporations.

This major is offered under the auspices of the Department of Marketing and Entrepreneurial Studies, Silberman College of Business, at the Florham Campus, Madison, New Jersey and also at the Metropolitan Campus, Teaneck, New Jersey.

Contact Ethne Swartz, Department Chair, at (973) 443-8979 or email for further information.
