Certificate in Entrepreneurship

The certificate in entrepreneurship delivers a series of entrepreneurship courses for undergraduate students in business or non-business majors. Courses promote entrepreneurial awareness and thinking among students and develop the necessary real-world skills and abilities to become self-employed or start and grow an entrepreneurial venture.

Students demonstrate these skills by developing and presenting a viable business plan to a review panel made up of successful entrepreneurs in the capstone course. Students completing the program will be awarded a certificate in entrepreneurship from the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology.

The program is comprised of six 3-credit hour courses. Students select individual certificate tracks specifically designed for their field of study. A common thread running through all courses provide each student with the opportunity to focus all course projects on their individual business concept.
