The objective of the certificate program in entrepreneurship is to expose non-Bachelor’s in Business Administration (non-BBA) students to entrepreneurship and to cultivate an “entrepreneurial mindset” within these students. A primary focus of the program is allowing the student to tailor the program to their individual program of study.
Admission cannot be guaranteed to all students meeting the admission criteria. The Entrepreneurship Certificate program will admit students up to its enrollment ceiling, and students judged to have the highest probability of success will be admitted. Members of groups historically underrepresented in business will receive special consideration. Each semester those accepted into the Entrepreneurship Certificate program will have their progress tracked by DARS. An overall G.P.A. of 2.50 in certificate courses is required. The Entrepreneurship Certificate will be awarded only to students who have been accepted into the program and who have fulfilled all certificate requirements. Students will need to consult the Management Department office before the deadline for graduation to ensure that all requirements have been fulfilled and the certificate will be awarded.
Criteria for admission into the Entrepreneurship Certificate program include:
1. Complete the online application, including a 200-300 memorandum illustrating your interest in entrepreneurship.
2. Submit the applicant’s resume.
3. Complete a panel interview, with entrepreneurship faculty. Must bring most recent DARS to interview.
4. Complete add/change of major forms found in the Center office (401).
