The MSE program is a 14-month, full-time degree program which equips the students with the business skills and practical experience to ready themselves for careers in start-ups, social enterprise, and new business development. Summer Bootcamp courses are shared with MS in Finance students. Most remaining program requirements are completed with classes that will also include students from the MBA and other MS programs. The MSE program is taught by the same faculty as the MBA program, and has the same Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) accreditation. A new class begins each June.
Admissions requirements for the MSE program are similar to those for the evening MBA program (please refer to the Admissions section, Chapter 3) with the following exceptions:

Leaves of Absence
Transferring into Another Graduate Business Program
For information regarding entrance into the MBA program after completion of the MSE program, contact the Graduate Business Programs Office, 116 Lucas Hall.
After bootcamp (sessions 1 AND 2), if a student has a cumulative GPA below a 3.0, he/she will be placed on academic probation. A student then has one quarter to raise the GPA to 3.0.
The administration will reach out to the faculty midway through the term to acquire a status update on academic performance to ensure students are aware of academic resources and tutoring in an attempt to resolve matters before they can become GPA issues.
If a student has a cumulative GPA below a 3.0 at the end of his/her final quarter and all course requirements have been satisfied, no degree will be awarded until the cumulative GPA is a 3.0 or better through completion of additional course work in the SCU graduate business school.
MSE program students can take advantage of all of the Graduate Business student life activities, which include but are not limited to:
In addition, special MSE activities will be offered by the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Graduate Business Programs Office team.
