Offered jointly by the Penn State Smeal College of Business and Penn State World Campus, the 33-credit Master of Professional Studies in Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship is designed for leaders and aspiring leaders from organizations of all sizes, from start-ups to blue-chip companies.

Penn State also offers a standalone 12-credit Graduate Certificate in Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which can lead into the master’s degree.

“Innovation requires broad knowledge of engineering, marketing and sales, business strategy and technology,” said Shawn Clark, clinical professor at Smeal and faculty director for the programs. “The ability to understand your business, the environment and how to innovate appropriately given all the variables is essential.”
