Combined Bachelor's and Master's in Entrepreneurship

​The combined Bachelor's + Master's degree programs allow students to complete 12 graduate credit hours while still undergraduates. These three graduate level courses will count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs. 

DePaul Undergraduate Degree +​ Entrepreneurship (MS)

The Master of Science in Entrepreneurship is designed for students who are interested in turning good opportunities into thriving businesses. Students gain the proficiency necessary to take on a variety of entrepreneurial opportunities, such as starting a new business, developing corporate innovation, cultivating new product development strategies, or becoming involved on the funding side with angel investment and venture capital firms. The program culminates in the new venture applied lab class where students are given the opportunity to launch and grow their entrepreneurial endeavor with the help of DePaul expert mentors.

DePaul degree-seeking undergraduate students interested in earning a Master of Science degree in Entrepreneurship may apply to the bachelor's degree/Entrepreneurship (MS) combined program. Students may be able to obtain both degrees in as few as five years.
