Enterprise Development Center

Collaboration That Drives Success

The Enterprise Development Center (EDC) on the NJIT campus houses the oldest and largest business incubator program in New Jersey. Since 1988, its focus has been on helping promising start-up technology companies to successfully bring their business into the marketplace by providing office and lab space, financial help, business and technology services, and expert advice. These for-profit businesses must be developing or possess a high-tech or life science-related product, process, or service to be accepted into the EDC.

Real-World Benefits for Our Students

MBA online students can also benefit from the work of the EDC. Faculty working with the EDC incorporate what is happening in the incubator into their teaching, providing insight into the latest developments in the technological and business aspects of real-time technology commercialization. Case studies in the MBA online program can be drawn from actual EDC projects. In these ways, the EDC helps make learning relevant for all NJIT MBA students, whether on campus or online.
