Round 4 deadline: November 2nd | Get started
MSIE students are trained to commercialize ideas and pursue successful career opportunities of entrepreneurship. A third of the capstone projects created by students from the first cohort are already morphing into innovative startups.
Moreover, students are applying lessons gleaned from classes before wrapping up their MSIE: “Elements of all the courses came up in conversations and gave me a distinct competitive advantage,” said Dennis Zaidi, referencing the Elite French Graduate School Entrepreneur Challenge he won in November. Zaidi triumphed due to his pitch promoting Clean Lakes startup, a social entrepreneurship company aimed at removing pollution in Canada’s Great Lakes. “The MSIE courses gave me the specific bodies of knowledge and vocabulary to communicate my idea from the perspective of C-Level decision makers.” Zaidi goes on to enumerate qualities extricated from MSIE courses such as Management of a Growing Enterprise (Sebastian Becker), Social Enterprise (Florian Hoos) and customer-centric marketing (Marc Vanhuele, Frederic Dalsace and Corinne Dauger). “To be honest, there are aspects of every single course that played a role… These techniques are actually rarely properly implemented or utilized in the startup world."
