College of Business now offers Master of Entrepreneurial Transactions program


Central Michigan University's College of Business Administration has begun offering a graduate-level online program titled Master of Entrepreneurial Transactions. 

The aim of the program is to build on the experience offered by other CBA programs such as the New Venture Competition. 

The program is designed around 12 courses, for a total of 36 credit hours.

Examples of an entrepreneurial transaction include presenting investor pitches and writing executive summaries, said entrepreneurship chair Jeff Thomas. 

"This program goes on to cover things like how to form a new (business) venture or how to form a new company," Thomas said.

The program will also include coursework and projects designed to teach students skills like creating and motivating entrepreneurial teams, buying and selling existing businesses and utilizing crowdfunding platforms.

As an online course, the program allows CBA to bring in experts and professionals from around the world to offer students advice and guidance. 

The board of advisors for the MET program includes International Private Equity Firm co-founder Edwin Wong; Louis Foreman, creator of the Emmy-winning PBS show “Everyday Edisons;” educator Malika Simmons and others.
