NTNU School of Entrepreneurship (NSE) is a two-year Master's degree programme  with a focus on business development and technology-based entrepreneurship. The programme combines academic insight with hands-on experience. Students are working in interdisciplinary teams of three to five people. Through three semesters, student teams develop a business idea of their choice to ensure its commercial success. NSE's vision is to educate the best business developers in the world.

NSE offers students a strong infrastructure, and range of resources, enabling them to successfully launch their businesses. All students have their workspace in our incubator at NTNU, and all projects are supported by a dedicated mentor with senior management or entrepreneurial experience. In addition, projects take advantage of contacts and relationships through NSE's extensive network. Through our strategic location at NTNU, students have access to pre-seed funding and prototype facilities in NTNU workshops and laboratories.

We have adopted an unofficial slogan, "Not because it's easy." The NSE culture and environment is designed to challenge our students by providing new experiences that take them outside their comfort zone. NSE students do not seek the easy way out, but rather want to push their limits to higher levels of performance.

The programme is highly competitive and selective. Each year NSE receives hundreds of applicants from all academic disciplines. Annually, approximately 35 students are accepted based on an overall evaluation of academic results, motivation and work experience.

Supplementary information is available at NSE's own website, which is operated by its students.
