Conrad launches part-time weekend MBET program

Originally published by the University of Waterloo

The Conrad Centre has launched a part-time version of its Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology (MBET) program, designed for individuals who want to develop the skills to lead change and launch new ideas while balancing full-time work. Course material will be delivered in weekend sessions over three years, with the first cohort starting classes in September 2017.

The MBET program is a graduate business degree for entrepreneurs which combines interdisciplinary courses with practical experiences in venture creation and commercialization. The new part-time program’s weekend format offers greater flexibility for students to develop their entrepreneurial skills with the mentorship of acclaimed faculty and industry leaders, while applying this learning to their workplace or venture in real-time.

Part-time MBET at a glance

Course delivery

Three years in duration. Course content delivered in weekend sessions (Friday evening and all day Saturday) held roughly every three weeks, with a total of 12 weekend sessions per year.

Curriculum

Nine courses and a Corporate Commercialization Practicum. The practicum will begin in the second year.

All nine courses and the practicum are integrated throughout the program rather than divided by conventional terms. The program is designed so that course material is delivered at the time when it is most relevant to the experiential components of the course, a reflection of the MBET philosophy of learning for the sake of achieving goals rather than for the sake of solving problems that may occur in the future.

The content of the part-time and full-time versions of the program is the same.
