The Entrepreneurship & Innovation Track (E&I) is an offering within the MIT Sloan MBA Program. The track focuses on launching and developing emerging technology companies and is designed for MBA students that have a strong interest in entrepreneurship. It builds a lifetime cohort of collaborative entrepreneurial peers, and leads to an MIT Sloan Certificate in Entrepreneurship & Innovation in addition to the MBA degree. The track curriculum heavily emphasizes team practice linked to real-world entrepreneurial projects, balances theoretical and practitioner education, and provides a thorough exposure to the many building blocks of an entrepreneurial career. In addition the track leaves sufficient freedom to select other courses for which MIT is also world famous.
