Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship

Our Program in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, PRIME, is a STEM Masters of Science (ScM) degree based in the Brown University School of Engineering

PRIME students experience the process of creating value from technology, learn how to develop embryonic ideas and execute how to bring these ideas to market. Core business skills in finance, strategy, marketing, decision making, globalization and management are provided to assure venture success.

Full-time on campus students also participate in business immersion activities, including an internship course and a trip to the San Francisco Bay area, where they interact with company executives, government representatives, and technologists, richly enhancing their classroom experiences. PRIME students leverage numerous School of Engineering resources for prototype development.

Additional Resources

There is an entrepreneurship room for the PRIME students equipped with the entire necessary infrastructure to carry out class assignments and projects. The PRIME students also have access to the entire engineering user facilities to create prototypes.
