The Entrepreneurship certificate does not include pre-business courses. Instead, it requires 6 courses, 2 of which are offered by a student’s home college and tailored to their particular areas of study. Only 6 of the required 18 credits are upper division.
For non-business students, the certificate offers an entire range of entrepreneurship skill-building opportunities (including ideation, innovation, marketing and finance) without the prerequisites required for admission to the David Eccles School of Business.
The certificate is a cost- and time-effective way for students to get the skills that they need to start up their own companies or work for a startup. Certificate students also have opportunities to work with the Lassonde Entrepreneurship Institute, just as Entrepreneurship majors and minors do.
