Student Highlight - Jennifer Sineway

Jennifer Sineway"The MSEAT program embodies a great amount of human capital that may not be reflected in other programs. The diverse curriculum shared between the College of Business, College of Medicine and College of Engineering has helped change and shape the way that I approach all new ventures in my life. Whether helping scientists formulate a strategy to commercialize a patented adult stem cell line or pitching ideas to professional sports teams, students in this program can be confident that they are learning the skills necessary in their journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur."

"Entrepreneurship is when you recognize an opportunity and have the vision and ambition to pursue it. It is an innovation locomotion that when given the right parts, such as passion, knowledge, and experience becomes an unstoppable force that serves to benefit its community. It is about being unorthodox, unafraid to take a leap, and to do so with drive and clarity. This program has engaged and empowered me to seek out opportunities and has given me the keys to success in my endeavors. With its integrative approach to entrepreneurship and focus in technology, business, and medicine I will have the "know how" to be a successful businessman. The program's diverse community of professors, students, and alumnus greatly enhanced my learning experience and lifted the ceiling of opportunities available to me. Entrepreneurship is not just a business method, it is a lifestyle that takes dedication and enrichment. Which is just what this program offers."

Jerry Trotter graduated with the class of 2011, from the Master of Science in Entrepreneurship in Applied Technologies Program

I literally put into practice what I learned in the classroom by implementing different programs and projects with SIFE."

Shaun Bolger

"…the Center for Entrepreneurship has provided me with a unique, unprecedented learning experience and set of skills that I feel confident will translate into real world achievement. I would encourage all individuals interested in anything from global corporate strategy and intellectual property portfolio management to business planning and small venture startup to either take electives or fully enroll in the program."

"The Spanish have a saying Saber es Poder, also known as, Knowledge is Power. I postulate that academic knowledge is powerful in academic settings, but can be difficult to distill into something useable. This transformation occurs in this program. The fact that this program continues to win national awards yearly clearly identifies that USF is on the right track. Highly enjoyed it. Highly recommend it."

William G. Marshall, Jr., MD, MS, MBA, MSEAT

"It (the program) provides instruction and experience in areas not commonly covered in business, science, and engineering curricula such as intellectual property and FDA regulatory compliance. I would highly recommend this program for all business students, and most, if not all, engineering, science, and medical students."

William G. Marshall was one of the original three graduates of the MS Degree in Entrepreneurship

David K. Vondenberger, M.S., M.B.A.

"The format of this award-winning program provides a realistic preview of entrepreneurship across various fields – an insight that cannot be found in a textbook or classroom. The opportunity to learn from distinguished and experienced entrepreneurial faculty, business leaders, concept generators and seasoned entrepreneurs is a highlight of this program. The program successfully teaches students to apply their knowledge in business, life sciences, engineering, and other fields to create value in new and existing ventures."
