Want to create the next Google? The University of Maryland, College Park wants to help you get there, the Daily Record reports.
This fall, the university will launch an online program for students to earn a master’s degree in technology entrepreneurship. The 30-credit program will be offered through the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), which provides classes and resources to help businesses grow. The program can be completed in 15 months.
The master of technology entrepreneurship program is designed for both full- and part-time students worldwide, university officials announced Tuesday, and will cover a curriculum including lessons in venture capital and financial management, concept development, product testing and business law.
Students will also gain access to two programs within Mtech: the Technology Advancement Program, a business incubator, and the Venture Accelerator Program, which helps faculty and students commercialize their ideas.
