Give to the MBC Founders Fund

Support the Master of Business Creation (MBC) founders as they launch and grow their businesses in this unique program.  The program is offered by the Department of Entrepreneurship & Strategy at the David Eccles School of Business, in partnership with the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. Your donations will support the MBC Founders Fund, a pool of seed funding for students to access when they need to further develop their prototypes, design websites, travel to meet with potential clients or investors, and more. 

Thank you for investing in both our founders and Eccles School!

About the MBC Program

The Master of Business Creation (MBC) is a professional-degree program for serious entrepreneurs committed to growing their startup company. The program features innovative, application-focused curriculum and access to mentoring, grants, and scholarships. The program is offered at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business by the Department of Entrepreneurship & Strategy in partnership with the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. Together, they provide an entrepreneur program ranked among the top 10 in the nation.

The MBC degree has courses, workshops, and labs specifically designed for aspiring entrepreneurs building and scaling their business. The program is available in two formats – an in-person, full-time, 9-month option or an online, part-time, 14-month option. In both options, founders work to grow their companies, take entrepreneurially focused classes, engage in practicum labs, and receive personalized support. Faculty and mentors in the program are leading scholars and experienced entrepreneurs who can provide detailed insight into all stages of the entrepreneurial process.
