Required Lindner Courses
This Certificate enables specialization within the Entrepreneurship major. As such, students may double-count courses between the Entrepreneurship Major and Family Business Certificate. This is a special case, as the certificate is not a minor, but rather a recognition within Entrepreneurship.
