Now more than ever, employers are seeking individuals with an entrepreneurial mindset who can utilize critical thinking and seek continuous improvement by bringing new ideas to life. D’Amore-McKim’s Graduate Certificate in Corporate Innovation is designed to prepare students to become creative thought leaders who can introduce out-of-the-box thinking as a concrete strategy within a business.
In just four or five courses, students will discover how to expand boundaries through creative thinking and secure a seat at their organization's decision-making table. Through case studies and project work, this specialized program will help students build the foundational business knowledge required to commercialize theories or new products.
Students will take one required course and either three or four elective courses. The minimum required number of courses to earn your certificate is four; however, many students opt to take an additional elective in order to broaden their expertise.
The Graduate Certificate in Corporate Innovation enrolls in January, May, and September.
