9 reasons why you should get your Master of Science in Entrepreneurship online

Whether you’re interested in launching your own company or innovating one that already exists, a master’s degree in entrepreneurship is a great way to gain the competencies you’ll need to succeed. A Thomas S. Johnson Master of Science in Entrepreneurship (MSE) from the University of Florida is the perfect degree for merging the principle and practice of entrepreneurship.

The new UF Master of Science in Entrepreneurship Online program makes it easier for you to gain your entrepreneurial skill set without having to come to the UF campus to earn your degree. The UF MSE Online program doesn’t require a single campus visit, allowing you to take classes from anywhere in the world.

That’s not the only reason why you should consider earning your Master of Science in Entrepreneurship online. Check out the other nine reasons below.

  1. Flexibility

Earning your degree has never been easier when you take your studies online. While the MSE Online program is designed to be completed in one year, you can modify your course schedule to take fewer classes within a semester and complete the program over a longer period of time.

  1. No work experience required

Some graduate programs require you to have work experience before pursuing a degree, but with the UF MSE Online program, it’s not something you need to have on your resume to apply.

At UF, we believe that entrepreneurship is a process, and we can teach you how to apply that process to your ideas. In our program, you learn inside and outside of the classroom by applying the entrepreneurial competencies you learn in real-world scenarios.

  1. Prepare to jump into the career you want

The competencies you learn in the UF MSE Online program are translatable to any career path. With a Master of Science in Entrepreneurship, you’ll be ready for a career in the gig economy, join a startup or launch your own business.

The UF MSE program also teaches you the entrepreneurial mindset, which is useful in whatever career path you choose. With the entrepreneurial mindset, you understand how adapting your attitude and behavior can be used in your professional and personal life. This mindset is great to learn because it can be adapted to any career situation.

  1. Learn from the best

The same world-class faculty that teach as part of the on-campus MSE program teach the classes for the Online program. Their classes are specifically designed for online students using techniques developed through continued use of emerging technology.

  1. Access to on-campus activities

Earning your degree online doesn’t mean you aren’t connected to the UF campus. In the MSE Online program, you are welcome to participate in events and use services on-campus like the Big Idea Gator Business Plan Competition, Gator Hatchery student incubator, annual trip to Silicon Valley, networking events and more.

  1. Career coaches and business mentors on call

Two additional campus resources students in the MSE Online program have access to are the career coaches in Warrington’s Business Career Services office as well as mentors within the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center.

The Business Career Services team relies on a strategic approach and has a successful track record of preparing students during their job search process. Warrington’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center is staffed with faculty and entrepreneurial experts that are available to help mentor students as they work through their business ideas, plans and experiences.

  1. Combined and concurrent-degree options

If you’re already a student at UF, you can combine your studies and earn your bachelor’s and master’s degree faster, or earn multiple master’s degrees concurrently. Why not take the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and resume while also saving time and money?
