I'm interested in the online section; is it a traditional online course?

This is like no other online course.  In short, it’s a hybrid online course.  We have created an innovative online environment that effectively extends the intimate and collaborative classroom setting to any mobile device.  Through our classroom “studio,” online classes will be broadcasted simultaneously at the same times as the normal sections.  We have integrated world-class videoconferencing technology to allow you to be virtually inside the classroom and collaborate with your online cohort.  Since all of the course curriculum and assessments are available on the website, you can take this class anywhere.  If you can’t make it to virtual class, the lectures will be posted after class.

Are there prerequisites; could I take more than one?

There are no prerequisites, although we do recommend starting from ENTP 1010 in order to have the most transformative entrepreneurial experience.

If I'm a business (or pre-business) student, can I apply?

Yes, the certificate is open to all majors.

Really, I get general education credit for these entrepreneurship classes?

Yes, ENTP 1010 fulfills (BF) general elective requirement; and ENTP 1020 fulfills (AS) general elective requirement.
