The entrepreneurship certificate is available to non-business school students. The certificate offers an entire range of entrepreneurship skill-building opportunities (including ideation, innovation, social entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial marketing, and entrepreneurial finance) without the prerequisites required for admission to the David Eccles School of Business.
The curriculum does not include pre-business courses. Rather, it requires six courses, two of which are offered by a student’s home college and tailored to their particular areas of study. Only three classes of the required six are upper division.
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.
