The MS in Entrepreneurship is a one-year intense experiential program where students begin with an idea, apply rigorous business principles and research techniques, and graduate with both a Master of Science degree and a platform from which to launch a new venture. Lubin's MS in Entrepreneurship combines foundational experiences, research tools, and professional network development necessary to establish innovative new businesses. This degree program also provides students with the managerial insight to lead businesses toward fulfilling their strategic objectives.

Here's what to expect with an MS in Entrepreneurship.
Excellent compensation: $38,550-$183,270 (retail manager to chief sustainability officer) (Source: O*NET) There is no median salary, really, because either you will bring an entrepreneurial mindset to any role in business or you will invent a job that does not yet exist
GAIN USEFUL SKILLS AND PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE
The MS in Entrepreneurship offers an experiential learning focus. Students develop their own ventures and personally engage with entrepreneurs in New York City. This is where theory meets practice. Students have opportunities to present their ideas before panels of expert entrepreneurs and investors through Pace University's Entrepreneurship Lab (eLab), a collaborative workspace that promotes cross-disciplinary problem solving and the entrepreneurial mindset. In addition to providing staff assistance, valuable technology resources and dedicated space, the eLab organizes a wide variety of events and activities. These include competitions, such as the Pitch Contest, Business Plan Competition, Hackathon, and Mobile App Design Contest. The eLab also hosts different speakers, social and networking functions, workshops, and mentoring programs.
Upon graduation from the program, students are prepared to:
Recognize how entrepreneurs develop and exploit their "social structure of opportunity"
Identify and derive business concepts and business models, and assess their viability
Analyze and evaluate the financial requirements of exploiting a venture opportunity
Identify how entrepreneurs go about developing entrepreneurial culture
Develop policies and practices for sustainable organizations
