The Master of Entrepreneurship programme is taught within the Department of Management at The Otago Business School, and the School's close connection with the business community is crucial to ensuring that our research and teaching are relevant to the current business environment.
Dunedin has a vibrant and active startup ecosystem, It's a unique ecosystem as it is supported by Startup Dunedin, a not-for-profit organisation that exists to foster entrepreneurship in Dunedin.
Startup Dunedin run three different programmes (the Challenger series, Audacious and Co.Starters) to cater for ideas and entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey.
