What is the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship?
The Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship (BMoE) is a holistic teaching and learning approach that enables engineers to be more entrepreneurial. It is one of our core programs for teaching the methodology.
This method of learning helps students understand general concepts through practice, observation, critical thinking, and games.
Every entrepreneur's path is different and students come to us at many different stages in that path. Our goal is to help students discover the next milestone on their journey to becoming successful entrepreneurs.
The Three Layers of the BMoE
Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship's inductive learning and journey-based approach are supported by the following three main elements: frameworks, mindset, and networks.

Composed of cases and tactics which are found in many entrepreneurial courses and provide the students with knowledge and facts associated with entrepreneurship. For examples, opportunity recognition, MVP, raising funds, business models, case studies, sales process, etc.
