The Leavey School of Business begins teaching students in two new graduate programs this summer. Both degrees will incorporate an emphasis on business ethics, including a course in business integrity and society.

M.S. in entrepreneurship

To give students vital knowledge to find new market opportunities, evaluate customer needs, and understand what’s required to “scale up” a good idea. Includes classes in managing innovation, intellectual property, and economics for business decisions.
 

M.S. in finance

For students seeking deeper analytical understanding of today’s venture-capital and financial marketplace. Teaches how to analyze sophisticated financial statements and understand U.S. and international financial markets and institutions.
