After completing Grand Canyon University's Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurial Studies program, students may choose to pursue a master's degree in entrepreneurship or a related area.

  • Master of Business Administration
  • Master of Business Administration with a Specialization in Accounting
  • Master of Business Administration with a Specialization in Internet Marketing

Career Paths:

Because entrepreneurs usually start a business in an area dear to their hearts, career possibilities are unlimited. The beginning stage of an entrepreneurial project may cause graduates to begin in a job somewhat different from what they anticipate further down the road. For example, someone who starts their own restaurant may often work as cook, dishwasher, bookkeeper, and janitor when the business begins, but all the while anticipate the time when they can just be a restaurant manager. A few of the possible careers available to the entrepreneur are:

  • Market information specialist
  • Employment counselor
  • Telecommunication marketer
