University of Waterloo

CMC‑Canada is proud to partner with the
University of Waterloo

In the Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology (MBET), students learn inside and outside of the classroom. Networking, practical experience, and hands-on learning with like-minded people in the Waterloo entrepreneurship community that complement the core master's-level courses inside the classroom.
Students are immersed in an experiential learning environment. Through the program, students are focused on the commercialization of their ideas to build a venture. Students will also explore creating new ventures within an existing organization in a corporate innovation project, and will also collaborate with early-stage technology startups to validate their business model. 
The MBET is a graduate entrepreneurship masters program that combines interdisciplinary courses with practical experiences in venture creation and commercialization, offered in 2 formats: the full-time program which is completed in one year and the part-time program which is currently completed in three years.
In partnership with CMC-Canada, the University of Waterloo now offers students enrolled in the Master of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Technology (MBET) the ability to satisfy the educational requirements necessary for obtaining the Certified Management Consulting (CMC) designation. Project Management and Essentials of Management Consulting are now offered as additional courses within the 12-month MBET program.

MBET is offered through The Conrad School of Entrepreneurship and Business.
