career in enterpreneurship [#permalink] New post 31 Aug 2010, 10:04
A decent chunk of MBA aspirants want to become an enterpreneur post MBA, either immediately or in the long term. I understand that some of the MBA students collaborate with their research institutes/engineering departments to expose themselves to new venture opportunities? How good are schools like MIT, Stanford, Haas, UCLA in providing such opportunities? What are the chances for an MBA aspirant to get into enterpreneurship if he/she didnt have a concrete idea before coming to B-school?

Of course, the obvious thing to do is to keep researching to come up with ideas and network like crazy. Anything else they can do to improve their chances? How realistic is it to expect to continue to pursue a career in enterpreneurship post MBA given that there would be an impending loan payments to make after graduation?

I understand that the chances are slim but wanted to trigger a discussion on various things one could do to improve the odds.

most schools have entrepreneur clubs which you can join. Some schools also have entrepreneur contests as well so you can network with classmates in doing that. Entrepreneurship is one of my goals post mba and i am putting that long term. A. to make some money to pay of debt. B. Get into a position that is within my entrepreneurial goal so i can learn as much info as I can about it so i can bring the knowledge back when i do start.

I actually work at an entrepreneurship. My boss didn't get an MBA, but he is currently pursuing his executive MBA. He started with only $500 in his pocket during a family crisis, and he made it out okay. If you have a great idea and great expertise, anything is possible.
