The first Master’s where you can work full-time.
Students who work while studying have been risking their grades, job, or health, in trying to combine intense time schedules. We feel they should have the time, knowledge and network to pursue their dreams without compromising their education or well-being.
With the GES Master’s in Start-up Creation and Entrepreneurship, you will attend one semester in the United States at Georgetown University and one semester in Europe at the University of Genoa. At the end you will obtain a European Master’s degree.
