UConn Master of Engineering in Global Entrepreneurship

The Master of Engineering in Global Entrepreneurship is a new and innovative program aimed at providing a nurturing ecosystem for early-stage entrepreneurs, and is a partnership between UConn’s Schools of Engineering and Business, Trinity College, University of New Haven, and CTNext.

30 Credit Global Entrepreneurship Master Program

The Global Entrepreneurship program, a partnership between the UConn Schools of Engineering and Business, Trinity College, and the University of New Haven, is intended to create a nurturing ecosystem for a profession that sees 90 percent of start-ups fold. Students for the program will have a diversified engineering background and unique entrepreneurial ideas. This program will enable novice entrepreneurs to learn best practices, receive mentorship from veteran entrepreneurs, and be set up for success.


What Sets Our Program Apart:

  • We are one of the very few engineering-focused entrepreneurial graduate degrees in the country, and the first in Connecticut.
  • We provide a full-tuition scholarship and pay you a yearly stipend to earn your Master’s of Engineering in Global Entrepreneurship degree while growing your business.
  • We help you to embed within the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Connecticut, and connect you with key investors that will help your start-up take off and excel in Connecticut.
  • UConn ranks as one of the top-25 public universities in the country, and has an impressive array of entrepreneurial resources, faculty, and staff ready to bring your start-up to the next level.


The Program Is Divided Into Three Stages, Which Are As Follows:

Stage 1, Student Entrepreneur:
The students with innovative start-up ideas will be recruited, receive financial support, and enroll into the Master’s of Engineering program. After enrollment, students will go through the 30-credit curriculum, where they will learn key skills.


Stage 2, Entrepreneurial Resident:
The students will graduate from the Master’s of Engineering in Global Entrepreneurship program and transition into the incubation stage, where they will continue to receive business support, actively network and engage with other entrepreneurs and investors, and work to secure external funding.


Stage 3, Principal Entrepreneur:
The fully-trained entrepreneurs will transition from the incubator environment into the Connecticut business ecosystem. At this stage, they will be well-established and well-embedded within the Connecticut entrepreneurial network, and will continue to develop their technologies or products and expand their operation.
