The Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology (MBET) is a graduate entrepreneurship masters program that combines interdisciplinary courses with practical experiences in venture creation and commercialization, offered as a full-time program (one year to complete) and a part-time program (three years to complete).
The MBET program equips students with the business knowledge, skills, and experience to move ideas and innovations into commercial practice. Students take core business courses such as marketing, finance, and accounting; however, course content and delivery is focused on the entrepreneurship process. Students also take courses in innovation and technology management, as well as certificates in technical sales and management consulting.
Entrepreneurial experience is embedded in the MBET curriculum through several practical components which provide context and hands-on application for classroom learning. To support this active learning, the program is delivered in an integrated format, with material from all nine courses delivered at the time that it is most relevant to the entrepreneurial process. This supports the MBET philosophy of learning to solve problems and achieve goals, rather than addressing hypothetical problems that might occur in the future.

I'm a recent grad and the network and community at Waterloo just blew me away. This isn't your typical MBA, it's very entrepreneurial with a strong focus on technology and the startup world. I truly loved my experience. My only caution is to people who pursue the MBA to "figure out what to do" after graduation. You need to understand how you want to make the MBET work for you, then network and choose electives and extracurriculars accordingly. Unlike a traditional MBA, where you might be streamlined into finance or management positions at big firms after graduation, the MBET will challenge you to create new things and work with people from different academic backgrounds--from the arts to tech to research types and many, many more. A+.
