The Certificate in Entrepreneurship delivers a series of entrepreneurship courses for undergraduate students in business or non-business school majors. Courses will promote entrepreneurial thinking among students and develop the necessary real-world skills for founding and growing 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 entrepreneur 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.

For information on general requirements for the certificate, see Certificate Program Policies and Procedures.
