The Master in Innovation and Entrepreneurship program begins in September each year, lasts for 24 months. The program is designed to give you a business education specializing in innovation and entrepreneurship, with a curriculum that sets graduates up to succeed as corporate intraprenerus, start-up leaders, and innovation consultants.
The structure in two parts includes:
The SEP helps entrepreneurial talents to develop and elaborate their own startup ideas: from finding co-founders, identifying trends and problems and finding and building solutions, to pitching in front of Venture Capitalists (VCs) and business angles The teams benefit from expert mentoring, access to the ESMT and Vali Berlin network, and a structured program of workshops by entrepreneurs and thought leaders from Berlin's startup scene.
In coordination with ESMT, you may alternatively choose to complete an internship of up to six months with a company and industry that meets your career goals. German students are encouraged to complete their internship abroad.
ESMT currently works with a growing number of companies to offer internships.
Please note that while ESMT has agreements with internship providers to offer internships, participants are still required to apply and pass the target company’s selection procedures. Participants may also source their own internship opportunities.
While working on your Master thesis, you may seek the opportunity of a second internship and carry out your research with support from practitioners. Alternatively, particularly those who intend to pursue an academic career, you may opt for working on a thesis topic in close coordination with a professor’s own research agenda.
