The Master of Business Administration in Entrepreneurship (ENTMBA) is a program designed for individuals interested in developing their entrepreneurial potential. In today’s business environment it is essential for leaders to focus on innovative value-based solutions, to develop their creative problem-solving skills and to perceive change as an opportunity. Individuals leading a small, privately held firm, a nonprofit organization or individuals working in larger public corporations will benefit from developing their entrepreneurial leadership abilities.

Students will learn…and experience…entrepreneurship. Through field studies, personal interviews with successful entrepreneurs and acting as consultants to individuals creating new ventures, students apply entrepreneurial thinking. The curriculum, developed in collaboration with successful entrepreneurs and business leaders, is taught with Baldwin Wallace University’s distinctive combination of theory and practical application.


The ENTMBA program includes a minimum of 40 credit hours of course work, not including any required foundation courses. Classes are offered weeknights during three semesters in the calendar year. Participants can complete the sequence of 12 core classes and four hours of elective seminars in two years if they choose, but the pace at which students proceed through the curriculum is flexible to accommodate individual student needs. Each core class meets one evening per week for 12 weeks for a period of three hours and 10 minutes. The elective seminars typically meet for three hours and ten minutes one night per week over a three week term. The three-week terms for elective seminars are scheduled at the start of the Fall and Spring semesters prior to the beginning of the 12-week core class schedule. Students may be required to complete all or some of the foundation courses before the regular core course sequence.
