Master of Entrepreneurial Ventures

CMU entrepreneurship majors and minors!

With advising and planning, you can complete your Master of Entrepreneurial Ventures the summer after you graduate with your undergraduate degree.

The Master of Entrepreneurial Ventures will teach you all the legal, financing, funding, hiring, filing and governance knowledge you need to move your project from great idea to money-making venture.

This is how it works

Early in your junior year, you apply to the MEV program and submit an Accelerated Master's Degree Program: Acknowledgement and Approval form. Visit the department in Grawn Hall 164 or call 989-774-3270 to discuss this process with the program director.

Admission Criteria

  1. Complete a minimum of 86 credit hours toward your bachelor's degree with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.30.
  2. Complete ENT 495 Venture Development or enroll to take it in the fall of Year 4.
  3. Meet with faculty of ENT 600 and 605 to devise a strategy and timetable for satisfying the credit by exam requirements.

During your senior year, you complete any remaining courses in your undergraduate program and 18 credits of MEV coursework that will count toward both your undergraduate and MEV degrees.

  • You must earn a 3.0 GPA or higher in each course intended to apply to the MEV degree.
  • If you do not, you will be removed from the accelerated MEV program, and the ENT courses you have taken may only be used toward your undergraduate program.

The remaining six courses in the MEV program are taken during the summer after your undergraduate degree is awarded. Of these, students with an entrepreneurship major should be able to test out of ENT 600 Business Foundations for Entrepreneurs and ENT 605 Foundations of Entrepreneurship. That leaves four eight-week courses to complete during the summer to earn your master's degree.
