Master of Science in Innovation and Venture DevelopmentThe new Master of Science in Innovation and Venture Development is looking for ambitious, bold, creative thinkers with an insatiable desire to start something that makes a difference in the world. In other words, you!

This degree program is a partnership between the Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and the W. P. Carey School of Business — a master’s program that delivers what’s been missing from other entrepreneurial programs: studio-based, student-centric, experiential learning.

He is one of the extraordinary faculty committed to helping MSIVD students make the difference they want to make in the world. Watch a video from Trujilo.
