What you'll learn

If you’re curious about the space and entrepreneurship, you’ve come to right place. Our two-semester decal will cover the basics of the modern space economy, dynamics of the NewSpace industry, and basics of entrepreneurship both in and out of industry. In addition, you’ll be able to further deepen your knowledge through project work with our course partners.

How you'll learn

Learn from a dynamic, in-person lecture series featuring Harvard Business School case studies, world-renowned guest speakers, and in-class exercises and workshops led by our course partners.

Outside the classroom, you’ll directly apply what you learned through cross-disciplinary project work with our course partners.

Past partners

We’ve already had the opportunity to partner with leading innovative companies in the space industry as part of our Entrepreneurship in NewSpace DeCal.


You don’t have to take our word for it. Both past students and project partners have left stellar reviews.

Elizabeth Anderson

Government Affairs Associate at Space Foundation

"The Space Foundation team worked closely with a group of students in the NewSpace program. They produced a very high-quality paper and that we have proudly shared with incoming interns and internally among our employees. The value brought to our team from their research and the opportunity to work with these passionate students made the program well worth the time investment."

Felipe Cuellar

Past Student

"Through this DeCal I got the chance to take one of the coolest classes I’d ever taken at Berkeley. The classes were insightful and engaging, the speakers diverse and goal-oriented, and the project leaders determined and helpful. If Space is a dream of yours, don’t pass this class up!"

Tanya Harrison

Director of Strategic Science Initiatives, Planet Labs

"Working with Berkeley’s NewSpace students was a fantastic experience for Planet. We were continually impressed by the ability and drive of the students to tackle the investigation at hand throughout the course of the academic year. They came up with novel approaches and were not afraid to dive deep into the assignment, which had a real-world impact of helping to better understand California wildfires."
