MBA Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Strategy

MBA Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Strategy

DKA offers more than 25 electives in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovation and strategy, and 70%of MBA students take entrepreneurship courses while at DKA. DKA also encourages students to be innovative and to start new ventures through a variety of entrepreneurial activities.


Entrepreneurship at DKA is about “applied business innovation”: how to create new value not only through new products or services, but with novel technologies, business concepts, organizing structures, transaction/financing mechanisms, distribution channels, and market segmentation. This selection of courses emphasizes the art and science of “creating something new from little.” These courses challenge students to think about how one can create value and build a productive business organization with available resources (e.g., intelligence, insight, energy, initiative and personal relationships). Entrepreneurship is highly consistent with DKA’s focus on “creating, leading and transforming businesses” insofar as it is a vital ingredient of each.
