*The Computer Science/IT Entrepreneurship will not be accepting applications for spring or fall 2013. Interested applicants should consider applying to the MA Program in Computer Science.*

Today's business world demands both sharp technical skills and broad business insight. The Brandeis three semester master’s program in computer science and IT entrepreneurship goes beyond a traditional graduate technology degree — we teach students how to form a business around their ideas in the IT sector, from IT research to software development.

This program combines graduate level computer science coursework with electives that emphasize cutting-edge research and the special skills required for launching a successful business in IT.


“The CS & IT Entrepreneurship program has offered me a balanced mix of thinking and hands-on approaches, with plenty of room for entrepreneurial creativity. Also, studying together with students of different educational backgrounds coming from many parts of the world helps to create a very broad point of view on how different cultures work.” — MA student from Ghana

“After just three weeks in the program the world changed. For the first time in my life I go around my daily life looking at things differently. I no longer look at the world as it is, but rather as it could be.  In every activity, every time that I browse the web, every time that I purchase a product, every time that I receive a service, I look at how I can make it better, how can I innovate, how can I create a new industry.  This is powerful, very powerful.  I feel that I can really make a difference in my country, in the world.” – MA from Rwanda
