Faculty advisors are also available throughout the academic year to meet with current students and answer questions about course selection and other matters important to your academic and professional development. If you are undecided about course selection we encourage you to speak with faculty advisors in the areas under consideration before making a decision. If your graduate and undergraduate studies are in the same area, faculty advisors can help you select courses that will enhance your prior background.

Course Selection

Students can review the MS in Entrepreneurship curriculum here: https://zicklin.baruch.cuny.edu/academic-programs/graduate/ms/entrepreneurship/

Students should complete MGT 9960 Entrepreneurial Strategy and Cases in the first semester.   If you are taking only one course, take MGT 9960. Select additional courses based on your preferred schedule and course pre- or co-requisites.

MGT 9960 is the co-requisite for several entrepreneurial courses. Not all courses are offered every semester: the class schedules for spring and fall are your best guide to future semesters. Entrepreneurship courses are usually not offered in summer, with the possible exception of MGT 9960.

If you are required to take ACC 9110 Financial Reporting, it is offered every spring semester.
