What makes MSIVD Unique

Program description

The innovation and venture development MS is a one-year master of science program that prepares leaders with the mindset, skillsets and practice needed to launch successful ventures in any industry or sector, inside existing organizations or as new entities. Graduates will be prepared to lead cross-disciplinary teams in a world of growing uncertainty and ambiguity: identifying needs and evaluating opportunities; generating insights from real world problems, innovating solutions; creating and launching scalable business models that provide value to all stakeholders.

The MSIVD program is a transdisciplinary partnership between three leading schools at Arizona State University:

  • Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering
  • W. P. Carey School of Business
  • Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts

An experience-based curriculum

The innovation and venture development MS is a studio-based, student-centric program, where each student will be responsible as the entrepreneur working with a small founding team (as in real life startup) to make things happen. The program erases traditional academic silos to provide students with problem-solving capabilities and practical experience that founders and leaders need to succeed.
