“As someone committed to the essential core value ‘Thirst for Learning,’ I feel lucky to be a part of the Entrepreneurial Masters Program. The focus, structure and setting are incomparable to anything I have ever experienced. The program truly helped me evolve to the next level of entrepreneurship.”
Govindh Jayaraman, EO Ottawa
EMP Class of 2015
The Entrepreneurial Masters Program (EMP) brings together 65 remarkable entrepreneurs – each a founder or co-founder of a company that grosses more than US$1 million — for four days at the MIT Endicott House, located in Dedham, Massachusetts, USA. Hosted by the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), this unique, executive education-style program has been designed for three specific reasons:
- To identify and bring together the next generation of entrepreneurial giants— the next Bill Gates or Richard Branson.
- To provide the kind of intense blending of practice and theory that is necessary to excel in this era and to do so in a format that fits your busy schedule.
- To offer this high-quality program at a price that is less than half the cost of comparable programs (All of our efforts go into quality programming and facilities, not fancy promotions).
The focus is on leadership. The sessions are rigorous. In short, we bring you the best, at a time when you need it, in a way that fits both your schedule and budget.
