Certificate in Knowledge Entrepreneurship and Innovation

The Certificate in Knowledge Entrepreneurship and Innovation is a university-wide certificate for students interested in exploring entrepreneurship within specific areas of interest.  The certificate consists of three interdisciplinary core courses in the foundations of entrepreneurship followed by two capstone courses within a student's disciplinary college. Individual colleges are encouraged to offer a capstone course as part of the program.

Beyond topics related specifically to entrepreneurial business practices, courses will include such topics as social entrepreneurship, arts entrepreneurship, idea generation, and storytelling as additional perspectives for the student entrepreneur.


Learn what entrepreneurship means and how it can be applied to your life. Discover how to recognize problems as opportunities and how to identify innovative, creative solutions. Understand how to test the feasibility of an idea and apply for various types of funding.

Students completing the certificate will be recognized for their achievements on their transcripts, and career services will market the certificate to potential employers, highlighting the innovative skills that students with this designation can offer.
