About Northeastern University D'Amore-McKim School of Business Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group
Northeastern was one of the first universities to create a formal entrepreneurship program, dating back to 1958. Today, the D’Amore-McKim Entrepreneurship & Innovation Group (E&I) is at the forefront of academic research, curricula, and experiential learning not only in entrepreneurship, but also in corporate innovation. Award-winning scholars and recognized industry leaders come together to form the backbone of E&I’s commitment to conduct impactful research, and to teach, guide, and mentor the next generations of innovators and entrepreneurs.
Research conducted by our faculty includes organizational strategies to respond to technology-driven transformations, digital platforms and crowdsourcing, innovation through acquisitions and alliances, new product development processes, entrepreneurship, managing venture growth, family business, new business models, and dynamic competition. E&I faculty publish in leading scholarly journals and also in the leading practitioner-oriented publications.
The E&I Group offers an array of courses in both innovation and entrepreneurship topics that prepare our students to become entrepreneurs or agents of change and progress in established orga...nizations. At the undergraduate level, our entrepreneurship programs are divided into four areas: corporate innovation, entrepreneurial startups, family business, and social innovation & entrepreneurship. Minors and major concentrations are both available. At the graduate level, E&I offers two concentrations in the MBA program: entrepreneurship and corporate innovation. In addition, the group offers two unique programs: the Master of Science in Innovation which focuses on corporate innovation and the Master of Science in Technological Entrepreneurship which focuses on emerging technology ventures.
Complementing our research and academic programs, E&I has spearheaded the creation of a vibrant entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem on campus and beyond. This includes the IDEA Student-Led Venture Accelerator, the MOSAIC guild of expertise-based service providers, The McCarthy(s) Venture Mentoring Network, and the Entrepreneurship Club. Our research, educational approach, and support ecosystem have resulted in multiple awards and recognitions, including being ranked a top 10 undergraduate entrepreneurship program in 2018 by The Princeton Review.
