Editorial

Become an entrepreneur who masters innovation challenges faced by firms in the 21st century
Thierry BOSSÉE-PILON

"The objective of MSc IE is to build students’ skills and competencies to become an entrepreneur or an intrapreneur who masters innovation challenges faced by firms in the 21st century. Innovation often takes birth at the frontier of several disciplines and therein lays one of the specificities of the MSc Innovation and Entrepreneurship. MSc IE combines the experience of two Grandes Ecoles : Rennes School of Business and INSA Rennes. This combination provides the opportunity for students to learn together by confronting their ideas and perspectives in the implementation of a venture creation project or by acting as intrapreneurs in large groups."

Testimony

This is for me a unique experience to pre-design my project
Anne BIENVENU, French Student

I chose the MSc Innovation and Entrepreneurship in order to acquire more technical knowledge and improve my business skills. I always have been interested in creation, novelty and technology and always wanted to build my own company. This is for me a unique experience to pre-design my project, work in complementary groups and learn more about myself.
