The Entrepreneurship certificate is designed to give students the basic business concepts necessary to start and operate their own small business.
It is useful for Industrial Technology students, for example, who have gained technical skill, but may be lacking the business understanding to make their new venture successful. Current entrepreneurs may also benefit from this class as they will gain practical knowledge useful in growing and managing their existing business. The certificate introduces students to various core business
aspects found in all businesses.
