The Entrepreneurship for Creatives MA prepares students to leverage entrepreneurial thinking, processes, and risk assessment within today’s creative economy, focusing on the identification and development of new creative ventures. The MA is a flexible, 30-credit hour program, combining substantial hybrid and online course work with in-person workshops and sessions on our Chicago campus. This program serves students with undergraduate degrees in a range of creative disciplines who seek the entrepreneurial knowledge and skills needed to launch their own businesses.

As a result of successfully completing the program requirements, students should be able to:

  • apply entrepreneurial thinking, processes, and risk assessment to the launch of a new venture;
  • develop inclusive, socially responsible, and community-engaged business practices;
  • generate a strategic business and financial model that fosters the creation, protection, and monetization of intellectual property;
  • analyze emerging markets applying a global perspective that reveals intercultural opportunities; and
  • communicate an organized and persuasive pitch for resources in support of a new venture.
