In today’s evolving business world, professionals need the knowledge and skills to capitalize upon breakthrough opportunities. At the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, we encourage graduate students from all over the world to explore their drive for innovation and invention through a Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship. In this program, students will have the opportunity to build the foundational business knowledge needed to bring their entrepreneurial ideas from concept to concrete.
In just four or five courses, students will explore how to bring their innovative ideas to the next level and become agents of change as part of the next generation of innovators. Coursework may explore a range of topics including technology-driven transformation, new product development processes, managing venture growth, new business models, and dynamic competition.
Students will take two required courses and either two or three 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 Entrepreneurship enrolls in January, May, and September.
