Concentration Information

The Entrepreneurship concentration has been designed to empower you with the knowledge, skills, resources, and connections you need to get your ideas off the ground, fully developed, and out to market in order to make a real-world, lasting impact. 
All of us at MIT have at least one thing in common: in some way or another, we all want to make a positive impact on the world. At some point during your time at MIT, it is likely that you will develop a brilliant solution to a real-world problem. That’s great, but what difference are you making if it stays in your lab or dorm room?
Students pursuing the Entrepreneurship concentration may also wish to consider a  Minor in Management Science or a Minor in Management. (Recall that classes in your concentration may also be counted towards your minor).
