Certificate in Entrepreneurial Studies


The Certificate in Entrepreneurial Studies is composed of four 3-credit courses (12 credits): BMGT 7540, BMGT 7962, BLAW 7319 and one graduate management elective course. The focus of the Certificate is to provide students with both a theoretical basis and the practical hands-on skills they will need to launch a new business venture and grow that business venture successfully. This certificate is for graduate students who are interested in (1) studying entrepreneurship for their own venture in family businesses or for small companies or (2) developing entrepreneurial skills, creative thinking and innovative approaches as career-builders working for large corporations. The Certificate program provides students with an overview of the different stages of the entrepreneurial process and gives them the skills and knowledge they need to succeed at each stage in the process. A student who wishes to earn the Certificate should consult with the faculty and the department chair to ensure that the elective course selected is in line with the student’s academic/career objectives.
