*Please note: Previously named the Online Master’s in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (OMIE), the name of the program has been changed to MSc in Innovation and Entrepreneurship to accurately reflect what a graduate of the program will see on his/her diploma.
HEC Paris’ MSc in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MSIE) is a self-paced 100% online degree that helps bring your ideas to life through a rigorous combination of academic theory and learning-by-doing activities.
We spoke with two participants from the program about why they chose MSIE and what it’s like to be part of a global classroom on Coursera.
Rahima is a project manager at General Electric, and her job requires her to be extremely organized and detail-oriented. She was looking for a master program that would help her become a more innovative business leader and decided that MSIE would be the perfect fit.
“I came to a point in my career where I needed to discover a new way of thinking. I wanted to unleash my potential and develop a more creative mindset. I decided to apply when I realized I wanted to make real change within my organization.” – Rahima
Tim is a site manager for Colorite Compounds, a leading producer of polymers for medical and industrial use. He’s a self-starter who’s founded 5 companies during his career, but he felt he needed to learn more entrepreneurial skills that the MSIE provides.
“I wanted to get my master of science in innovation and entrepreneurship to help me accomplish my goals, and this program helps you draw a roadmap to success. I looked at a number of other universities, but I decided that didn’t want a standard business degree. Instead, I wanted something focused on innovation. I believe anyone who graduates from this program will become more innovative and might even create the next big startup.” – Tim
Take part in a global classroom and engage with peers from all over the world without leaving your city.
“The program is very diverse, and there are students from more than 22 different countries. There is a tremendous sense of community and you definitely feel supported by your fellow classmates. Even though you’re not physically in the same classroom, there’s a sense of camaraderie.” – Tim
