In the last five years, more than 77% of MCAD graduates have found work in the areas they majored in.

This is no accident—MCAD’s entrepreneurial studies curriculum gets students focused on their careers early and enables them to successfully transition from student to professional.

As an entrepreneurial studies major you deepen your creative and critical-thinking skills as well as your business skills so you are equipped to create change in the world as an employee, business owner, artist, and/or global citizen.

In addition, the four internships you will complete prior to graduating not only give you invaluable professional experience, but they also allow you to build your professional network so that you have a number of contacts in your field that can help you find a job.
