Certificate in Entrepreneurship 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.
