EDUCATION ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAM


Education. Business. Entrepreneurship.

MBA M.S.Ed. Program of Study

The M.S.Ed. in Education Entrepreneurship dual degree with the Wharton MBA program is an exciting opportunity for Wharton MBA students to study pedagogy, develop educational leadership, scale social impact initiatives, and to become successful entrepreneurs in the education marketplace.

This 10-course program is designed for Wharton MBA students to start during the summer semester after their first year in the MBA program. Students will apply six elective courses and one transfer course to the Education Entrepreneurship program and complete both programs by the end of the second summer semester.

How To Apply

We highly recommend that you apply to the Wharton MBA program and the Education Entrepreneurship Program concurrently, to decrease redundancy in coursework.  While it is possible to apply to our program during the spring of your first year at Wharton,  there is a higher probability of repetitive coursework.

We ask that your transcripts and 2 recommendations from your MBA application are transferred over to Penn GSE from Wharton. Your Wharton Admissions Office contact will be Bonnie Wilson West, wilsonb@wharton.upenn.edu.  For your Education Entrepreneurship application please write a personal statement of interest, upload a resume and provide one additional letter of recommendation.
