Master of Business Creation Featured on NPR’s Marketplace


The Master of Business Creation (MBC) at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business was recently featured on NPR’s Marketplace program. The program featured Sherrita Magalde, founder of Sheer Ambrosia, which makes Greek-inspired, southern-dessert-infused, gourmet baklava and is based on Draper, Utah. Marketplace highlighted how her company is doing to show current trends in the economy.

Magalde explained how she learned about the MBC program at an event hosted by the Utah Black Chamber and then applied to enroll. She was admitted with a full scholarship, and she looks forward to using the program to grow her business. “I get this first class education and help with my business, and I don’t have to spend a dime,” Magalde said.

The MBC program is available in-person or online. It provides curriculum and mentorship to help founders grow and scale their businesses. Founders in the program immediately apply everything they are learning to their companies. The MBC is provided by the Department of Entrepreneurship & Strategy at the Eccles School in partnership with the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. Learn more and apply to the MBC program at
