MIE 310 | Introduction to Entrepreneurship
Introduction to planning, formation, and management of entrepreneurial ventures. Fundamental business concepts and managerial skills applied to entrepreneurial ventures. Course projects support experiential learning of critical skills.

MIE 410 | Business Opportunity Analysis
Issues and management processes related to the identification of new business opportunities with emphasis on commercializing new technologies. Students will analyze and develop individual plans for commercialization of a new technology or other innovation. New venture formation is the primary focus, but the processes and skills students develop are relevant to new product introductions by existing firms.

M 380 | Doing Business Globally
This experiential course combines in-class learning with out-of-classroom experiences to learn how business is done from multiple perspectives. *The M 380 course fulfills 3 credits of the interdisciplinary degree requirements for all NC State students. In addition, it counts as an elective for the business administration minor.


Program has no pre-requisites.

*Although there are no pre-requisites to be completed before the start of this study abroad program, MIE 310, which is taught in the first half of the program, is a pre-requisite to MIE 410, which is taught in the second half of the program. All students must successfully pass MIE 310 while in-country in order to continue in the study abroad program.  

Academic Considerations

  • All courses are NC State courses and the grade earned in the course will count toward NC State GPA.
  • Review your degree audit to determine how courses will count for your major or minor. This program is designed for Poole majors and minors but all NC State students are welcome to apply.
