Certificate in Entrepreneurship
As part of our experiential, career-focused education, Nichols College offers a Certificate in Entrepreneurship. This program is designed to enable students with an interest in entrepreneurship to pursue their chosen undergraduate academic program at the same time as earning the certificate.
Students will have the opportunity to be mentored by successful business owners and consultants, as well as create and develop their own business proposal. Best of all, students can complete the program regardless of their major. It’s a jump start for any student hoping to join a family business or start their own.
Courses & Requirements
The certificate requires 12 credits of coursework, consisting of four three-credit courses. Depending on the student’s concentration, up to two courses may double-count in the academic program as well as the certificate program. Students are strongly encouraged to take EPS 227 as the prerequisite for these courses, but MGMT 227 will also suffice.
The final capstone course—Entrepreneurship Action Research Project—gives students several options to round out their experience. Students can shadow a business professional in an entrepreneurial environment or create their own business, receiving faculty support and expertise along the way.
