Cross-disciplinary Certificates

 

Entrepreneurship includes much more than just the “traditional” sole proprietor concept. There’s also intrapreneurship (corporate entrepreneurship), social entrepreneurship and global entrepreneurship. No matter what form your new venture might take, to succeed you need to know how to financially analyze the opportunity, how to secure your competitive advantage, how to market your new venture and ultimately how to manage your new business.

The Entrepreneurship certificate will provide you with those skills and also teach you how to leverage your current technical, creative and/or industry knowledge in an entrepreneurial context.

 

Curriculum

The certificate is made up of 12 semester credits, consisting of 3 core courses (9 semester credits) and 1-2 elective courses (3 semester credits).
