TEAM Program Overview
The one-year TEAM Master of Science program is offered jointly by the Simon Business School and the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and is administered by the University of Rochester Center for Entrepreneurship. This program is designed for students with an engineering, science, or mathematics undergraduate degree, who wish to pursue a master’s level technical education in combination with business and leadership courses.
Students accepted into the TEAM program may choose any technical concentration, such as optics, energy and the environment, computer science, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, or mechanical engineering. Students simultaneously take courses at the Simon Business School and the Hajim School of Engineering.
The depth of knowledge provided by the TEAM curriculum creates well-rounded, business-savvy engineers and scientists who are prepared to take on both the technical and business challenges of any industry in a global world.
The core of the TEAM program consists of three entrepreneurially focused business courses developed and offered by the Simon Business School, three graduate level engineering courses offered by the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and either an additional technical or entrepreneurship elective. A required practicum accompanied by a written business plan and oral presentation ensures students have practical experience, while graduate level technical courses of the student’s choosing serve to extend the student’s science and engineering background.
To receive a Master of Science degree in Technical Entrepreneurship and Management, a student must complete:
- Three core entrepreneurship management courses
- Three technical elective courses
- One additional technical or entrepreneurship management elective
- One semester long practicum
- Written business plan and oral presentation
