Wittenborg sees the possible professions of a graduate from the Master of Business Administration in Entrepreneurship & Innovation in four inter-related sections, between which there is often and natural overlap:

- The Entrepreneur

This is seen as someone who is committed to starting businesses and companies from scratch and making them a success.

- The Independent Self Employed Business Person

This is seen as a person who directs and manages a company, a Small or Medium sized enterprise (SME). This could be the owner of a family driven business, or a business person who buys and takes over an existing business. This can also be an entrepreneur who has started a business through innovation and remains directing and managing that company, without selling or leaving to start a new venture.

- The second in command in an Small or Medium sized enterprise.

This, extremely important entrepreneur is the most common non-executive entrepreneur in small business. An entrepreneur, as the number 2 in an SME is a vital position as it enables the company to develop in an innovative and goal orientated manner, with a careful balance of risks and opportunities.

- The Corporate Intrapreneur

This entrepreneurial role is becoming increasingly important within companies and organizations, as well as non-profit and governmental organizations, as they are forced to change, develop and innovate in the modern economy and business environment. Corporations require entrepreneurial business leaders who alongside their leadership qualities have a broad range of business skills and competencies and business administration knowledge.
